Manchester United fans want Ashley Young to return to Aston Villa, after his latest display.

Former Villa man Young has taken on board a great deal of criticism this season, and his performance in the Champions League last night did little to get the Old Trafford crowd off his back.

Indeed, there are now many United fans who want to see Young return to his old club, Villa, and join Dean Smith’s side.

United were beaten 3-0 by Barcelona last night, with Young at fault for the first goal that his side conceded.

Whether Villa would be open to taking Young back, if a deal was offered, is up for debate.

Smith is keen to bring in youth at Villa, but Young is still fondly remembered at Villa Park.
