Aston Villa sold Ashley Young back in 2011, but he remains very popular at Villa Park.

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.

The 33-year-old left Villa back in 2011 to join the Red Devils, and he has gone on to make 238 appearances for United.

If Young was to join Villa he would offer Smith’s side an option in defence or midfield, but affording his wages would be a test for the Midlands club.
