Ashley Young Reportedly Wants to End His Career at Man Utd Ahead of Proposed Contract Talks

Publish date:

Versatile Manchester United wide man Ashley Young has reportedly told the club that he wants to end his career at Old Trafford ahead of his proposed contract extension talks.

The 32-year-old has enjoyed a resurgent season so far under Jose Mourinho, starting 11 of the club's 13 Premier League games and captaining the squad in United's victory over CSKA Moscow in September.

And now, according to the Mirror, Young has told Manchester United that he wishes to stay at the club until the end of his career - not just for the 12-month extension set to be added to his £130,000 per week contract that is currently due to expire at the end of the season.

The ex-Aston Villa winger is currently doing a good job of proving his worth to the club in his bid to persuade them to give him a longer deal.


Young is capable of filling in at four different positions on the pitch, and it was his shot that was deflected in the only goal that came during United's 1-0 win over Brighton at the weekend, not to mention his overall impressive performance.

In fact, his form has even been recognised by England manager Gareth Southgate, who has already become notorious for preferring youth to experience in his squads. 

Young's latest call-up at the beginning of November was his first in four years. His substitute appearance against Brazil handed the wide player his 31st England cap, and has put him in serious contention for a spot on the plane ahead of the 2018 Russia World Cup.
