Ashley Young is set to leave Manchester United in this January transfer window.
The club captain has been in talks to join Serie A giants Inter Milan, with just six months left on his current deal at Old Trafford.
The 34-year-old is struggling for game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has fallen behind Brandon Williams and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the full-back pecking order this season.
And according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano’s latest update, the deal to take Young to Italy is close.
Young is said to have already agreed personal terms to join up with Antonio Conte’s side, who currently sit joint top of the Serie A.
His contract will last until the summer of 2021, and it seems that Young feels he will get more game time in the twilight of his career in Italy.
Young has been a good servant at Old Trafford since his move from Aston Villa nine seasons ago and we wish him luck in his new challenge if the deal does indeed go through.
His exit, however, would leave Solskjaer with even less experience in the squad and perhaps in need of full-back cover to replace him.
According to the Sun, Harry Maguire will be handed the permanent captaincy upon his departure.
