Ashley Young is confident he made the right decision in joining Manchester United, despite Liverpool reportedly contesting the Barclays Premier League champions for his signature.

The 26-year-old completed his move to Old Trafford last month, after the Red Devils agreed a fee in the region of £16 million with Aston Villa.

And Young says it was a no-brainer regarding which club to choose when United came calling.

"There was never any doubt once I knew United were interested," he explained.

"When one of the biggest clubs in the world comes after you, whether to sign for them or not is a no-brainer.

"I was delighted to hear about their interest. I just wanted to get my signature on the paper."

Although predominantly a winger, Young will provide Sir Alex Ferguson with plenty of options next season as United chase domestic and European glory once more.


The England international can operate out wide or centrally, and will no doubt bring some added potency to an already fertile United attack.

"I can play left, right, off the front striker or as a main striker," he added.

"It is the manager's decision, not mine. I just have to concentrate on my own game and wherever I am picked, do myself justice.

"The manager bought me for a reason, to get assists and goals and work hard for the team. If I can do that every time I am selected, my job is done."
