West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Watford are reportedly set to suffer a blow in their pursuit of Manchester United star Ashley Young.

In-demand

According to ESPN, Premier League trio West Ham, Palace and Watford are interested in signing Young from United in the January transfer window.

The 34-year-old, who can operate as a full-back or as a winger, has been on the books of the Red Devils since 2011, but the England international has struggled for playing time so far this season.

 

So far this season, the former Watford and Aston Villa star has played 954 minutes in the Premier League and 170 minutes in the Europa League for United, according to WhoScored.

Blow

West Ham, Palace and Watford all reportedly want Young, but the player is claimed to have made the decision to join Inter Milan instead.

According to BBC Sport, Italian giants Inter will pay United a transfer fee of £1.28 million to sign Young this month.

The Englishman will reportedly undergo a medical today in Milan today before signing a contract with Inter, who are second in the Serie A table at the moment.

Understandable

Given how well Inter are doing under former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, it makes sense that Young is joining the Nerazzurri.
