Dalglish and Ferguson go 'head to head' for EPL star

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has added Liverpool target Ashley Young to his summer transfer wish list,and will go 'head to head' with Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish to make a deal with the star, according to the Daily Mail.

Young will be out of contract with Aston Villa in June 2012, leaving Villa in a position where they will need to either sign the 25-year-old this summer or resign to selling him.


Liverpool have been connected to Young on many occasions throughout the season, with Kenny Dalglish deciding between the England international and Villa teammate Stewart Downing in the latest development. Dalglish has reportedly been given a £50 million budget from Liverpool to spend in the summer, and is planning on offering Aston Villa a price they can’t refuse.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are looking to complete a clean out of the squad in the summer, with Owen Hargreaves, Michael Owen, Tomasz Kuszczak, Paul Scholes and Dimitar Berbatov all looking likely to exit. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has kept a close eye on Young over the season and is said to be readying an offer for the star.

With the summer period drawing closer, Manchester United and Liverpool could indeed go head to head on Young. And with Young looking to play Champions League football, United may have the edge over their bitter rivals to secure the star’s signature.
