The Sun has also claimed that Palace are facing competition for the signature of Young from as many as six Premier League matches.

The 31-year-old has been on the books of United since the summer of 2011 when he joined them from Aston Villa for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph at the time to be worth £16 million.

The England international is struggling for playing time at the moment, having been able to feature in just four Premier League matches so far this season.

During the 2015-16 campaign, Young scored one goal and created 10 chances in 18 league games for United.
