Aston Villa winger Ashley Young is 'dreaming' of a summer move to Manchester United, according to reports.
The England international has been linked with a number of Barclays Premier League clubs in recent months, with Liverpool one of the front-runners to land the player.
Manchester United have also been monitoring the player's contract situation, with the player yet to agree terms on a new deal and his current contract set to expire next summer.
Whilst Gerard Houllier's side value the player in the region of £25 million, reports in the Metro claim the Red Devils could land the player for as little as £10 million.
Bayern Munich are said to lead the chase for the player in Europe, although the most realistic competition will come from Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool as the Reds look to add to their attacking options. Spurs are also said to be interested.
However, the Daily Mail claims Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson sees Young as the natural successor to Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford, with the veteran set to play fewer minutes for the club despite signing a one-year contract extension.
Manchester United are thought to have money to spend, with Ferguson reportedly targeting a string of players as he looks to revamp the squad following a string of poor performances at the later stages of the season.
Liverpool have also been linked with a handful of wingers and forwards, with the club set to invest heavily in the summer.
NESV, the owners on Merseyside, have backed the club financially thus far and the fee would not be a problem should Liverpool continue their pursuit of Young.
