Manchester United

Young linked with United exit

24th April 2019, 14:54 by Nick Harris

Ashley Young could be a shock casualty in the end-of-season squad purge being planned by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

The Old Trafford manager wants five new players in the summer, which includes a new right-back, with Carrington insiders fearing Young could even be moved on.

Solskjaer has high hopes for Portuguese starlet Diogo Dalot, while Young has suffered from an alarming drop in form since he signed a new 12-month contract in February.

United are already saying goodbye to Antonio Valencia and there is a growing feeling he won't be the only veteran defender being shown the door in the coming months.

The Red Devils are heavily linked to Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who they know could cost them the thick end of £50million to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams.

Young is a relatively high earner on a reported £130,000 per week and, despite his eight years of loyal service, could see himself squeezed out of the club.
