Report: Ashley Young set to sign new Manchester United deal amid talk of Tottenham interest

Manchester United 3

The winger enjoyed a resurgence last season and now looks on course for an Old Trafford stay.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently been linked with a move for Ashley Young - by the likes of the Mirror - but any deal now seems unlikely, with talkSPORT claiming that the winger is close to signing a new deal with Manchester United.

Young enjoyed his best spell in years under Louis van Gaal last season and will be hoping to build upon it next term.

The arrival of Memphis Depay has added intense competition for the left-wing berth but there is likely to be an adjustment period for the Dutchman, and Young will be confident of playing a prominent role despite the £25 million arrival.

Tottenham’s interest in Young is believed to have followed a quote of £25 million for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, as reported by the Guardian, with Spurs viewing the United man as a cheaper alternative.

The England international is in the final year of his contract and could have been available on a cut-price deal, but he appears to be firmly in van Gaal’s thoughts for next season and should see his form rewarded with a new deal.
