United - Young Latest!

United - Young Latest!

Already, in the past few weeks, the Aston Villa striker Ashley Young has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Young, who has made it very clear that he will not be signing a new contract at Villa Park, has made it clear he wants to move to a club that will win honours.

According to the gossip columns this morning though, to secure the services of Ashley Young will cost any potential suitors the cool sum of £25 million.

Despite the colossal cost, those same gossip columns go on to infer that as well as United, Spurs and Liverpool would like the player on their books.

Looking at the opposition, I`d back us to secure his services, if we pursue a deal, over those other two any day, wouldn`t you?

£25m? He'd be a loss but £25m for a player that hasn't shown his best form for 2 seasons and in his last year of his contract, I'd be delighted. Can't see you paying that much for him to be honest.

25 mil?! Let the scousers have him, they actually need width whereas we have it in abundance. If we could get him relatively cheap then I wouldn't mind taking him off Villa whether he will be back up or a much needed AM who will run at defenders but lets not be taken for mugs. No offense Villa fans he's just not worth that much.

You can have him for 25 mill. But when did he make it clear he is leaving?
14/04/2011 19:57:00
Famousno7 no offence taken. 25m would be a great investment, it could give us an extra 25m + cash from randy so we could splash the cash again in the summer and maybe tempt milner back. Ferguson has sense not to spend 25m on young, he isn't that good really.

IMO Ashley Young is a top quality player and would fit in at United perfectly, just like Dwight Yorke did. I certainly don't want him to leave Villa, and he hasn't publicly said he will. I believe, like Milner, he is very happy at VP, but will leave in the summer. IF he does, I hope he goes to United to win trophies rather than line his pockets at Citeh. I am sure Milner has a lot of regrets about his move! The fee? £25m is far too high realistically, but Villa, despite the spculation, don't need to sell for financial reasons and will play it hard as we did with both Barry and Milner. My guess? £18m, with add ons which could take it up to £25m...A similar deal to the one that got us Darren Bent.

If we're being told the truth and Fergie truely does have £160 mil to spend then I would like to see him invest in the following players (all with reason): Akinfeev, Defour/Adam, Douglas Costa and Bale. Bale, is a wishy washy one, I would like to see him replace Giggs and also provide that natural left foot down the left hand side however it wont be the end of the world if we didn't get him. Akinfeev is self explanatory really, a top keeper who surely would be interested in joining us. He's relatively young yet a veteran of the game ... sort of, most importantly of all, he has Champions League experience and looks capable of filling VDS gloves. Now I have alot of faith in our current CM's however with Cleverley only being the real attacking option I would like to add more variety to it and also someone to challenge him to the spot thus Douglas Costa. Costa is also young but clearly has an abundance of talent, he can provide what we need, competition for the position, goals from midfield and someone who can ran at defenders and create space something we've lacked for some time now. I don't feel we have a reliable DM either (though I could be proved wrong if Carrick keeps up his recent form or Hargreaves makes a miraculous comeback) and I feel both Adam and Defour will be able to play that holding mid playmaker in a Scholes-esque style, neither are as defensively secure as Owen Hargreaves but all the same they are capable and both, once again, of good age.

he hasn't made it clear that he won't sign with Villa, he's said he won't talk contracts until the summer. Could be one and the same thing, although as he and his mrs has moved further London way I am not sure he wants a move up t'north!

25m for a player who has 1 year left on his contract, surely this is a joke. While he is a very good player, Villa migth get 20-25m if had 4 years left, however he can run down his contract and leave for free next summer, no club not even pathetic City would pay that much.. Realisticially he will leave for 10-15m.
