Done Deal: Manchester United sign up speedy winger on three-year deal

Ashley YoungThere was a lot of talk during last week between a few boozy punters that 30-year old Manchester United winger, Ashley Young was looking set for a swift exit out of Old Trafford.

This was coming off the back of the imminent arrival of Pedro and the ageing midfielders lack of first team opportunities in van Gaal’s new look squad for the upcoming season.

Both Tottenham and Liverpool had been heavily linked with the wide man, but it now appears Young has agreed a new three-year-deal with the Red Devils according to the Daily Star and will not be moving on after all.

With Angel Di Maria’s move looking to be confirmed in the next 24 hours, our landlord had this to say: “Good for United to hang on to Young I think – if they let him go as well as Di Maria they would be a bit short out wide”.

Our group of resident United fans here inside the Transfer Tavern feel it was essential that Young was signed up on a new deal, and many feel the man still has a lot to offer in the red shirt at Old Trafford!

What do you think United fans? Are you glad Young looks set to stay? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!
