Ashley Young is all set to extend his stay at Manchester United as the 33 year old is on the verge of putting pen to paper to a new contract.
Young has been one of the regulars for the Red Devils this season and has chipped in with valuable contribution whenever he has been called up. United hierarchy is pretty happy with the player’s contribution and is planning to reward the player with a brand new contract.
Former manager Jose Mourinho opted to give the player a one year extension in the last summer and it has proved to be a brilliant decision as the former Aston Villa winger has bailed out United on a number of occasions over the last couple of seasons.
Young started his career as a left winger but Mourinho’s greater influence turned him into a proper side back and he excelled in that position in such a way that England manager Gareth Southgate took him to World Cup as the first choice left back for the Three Lions.
Anthony Martial’s contract extension sparked a lot of attention recently. A host of other players with the likes of David De Gea and Ander Herrera are also in the line to receive new deals and Young could set the path for them.
