Aston Villa winger Ashley Young is a matter of days away from sealing a dream move to Manchester United according to talkSPORT reports.
The 25-year-old England international has also been high on Liverpool's list of summer transfer targets, but the former Watford star is ready to sign on at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be targeting three key signings when the transfer window reopens in June, with Young rumoured to be top of the Red Devils' list.
Manchester United are also looking to strengthen their goalkeeping department ahead of the imminent retirement of Edwin Van Der Sar.
Recent reports suggest that the club are on the verge of bringing in highly rated Spanish stopper David de Gea from Atletico Madrid – a move that could see him join Old Trafford in a £17million deal.
Liverpool meanwhile are also in the market for wing additions with Reds manager Kenny Dalglish keen on bringing Young to Anfield.
The £15million required to capture his services is not a problem for the Merseyside club, since the takeover of owners Fenway Sports Group now means they can dominate the financial market.
After recent developments that suggest Young has opted to join Manchester United over Liverpool, Dalglish has also declared an interest in Villa Park teammate Stewart Downing, who has paved the way for a summer switch to Anfield by stalling over talks of a new Aston Villa contract.
