Young turns down Man United contract offer

Ashley Young has turned down an offer of a one-year contract extension from Manchester United and looks increasingly likely to leave Old Trafford this month.

The 34-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer and United made the offer of a one-year extension in order to fend off interest from Inter Milan, as Antonio Conte tries to strengthen his squad in the fight for the Serie A title.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to keep Young, who is a key leader in the United dressing room and can play in multiple positions.

Conte remains a big fan of United’s captain and wanted to sign him in the summer of 2017 when he was in charge of Chelsea. It is understood Conte is willing to offer Young an 18-month contract with the Italian side.

Young moved to Old Trafford from Aston Villa in 2011 and has made 261 appearances for the club.
