Aston Villa monitoring Ashley Young's contract situation at Manchester United

Aston Villa are monitoring Ashley Young's future at Manchester United ahead of a potential swoop to take the winger back to Villa Park, according to the Daily Mail.

The England international was expected to play a bit-part role at Old Trafford last season but had established himself in the first team by the end of the campaign at the expense of club record signing Angel di Maria.

All in he started 23 Premier League games, and managed two goals as Manchester United bagged a Champions League spot.

The 30-year-old, who earns £120,000-per-week, only has one year to run on his contract with the Red Devils and so far he's not agreed to extend his stay in Manchester.

His future looks uncertain too despite the fact that Di Maria is set to leave the club and join Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth €65 million. Barcelona's Pedro is expected to be bought in by Louis van Gaal as his replacement, and will likely slot into the first team ahead of Young.

That has opened up the possibility of Young making a return to Villa, with boss Tim Sherwood keen on adding to his squad after losing both Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph.


Young moved to Manchester United from Villa for £18million on a five-year deal in 2011. He has since made 90 Premier League appearances and was part of the club's title-winning team in 2013, the last won under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Aston Villa are also being linked with a move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who thrived under Sherwood during his time in charge of Spurs last year.

Do you think Ashley Young is good enough to be a Manchester United player?
