Inter Milan defender Ashley Young is likely to stay with the Italian club even for the next campaign. The 35-year-old made the switch to the Italian outfit back in January and he was just looking to get a place in his new team before the coronavirus pandemic the season to a halt.Even though he has spent only a couple of weeks playing under Antonio Conte,Young seems to have impressed the manager sufficiently in such a way that a contract extension may be on the way.
Inter and all other football clubs are in doubt about the future owing to the season being suspended in the middle. Furthermore, there is expected to be a lot of disruption to the football’s financial world since many TV companies will be asking for a refund from the TV money. This is expected to lower the financial income for clubs and teams may be forced to retain the current options before the world starts to recover. Even though Young was signed only in January, he was expected to be a stopgap for the Italian outfit before they bring in Emerson Palmieri or Marcos Alonso from Chelsea. Both have been dissatisfied with life at Stamford Bridge and they are keen for a move.
Meanwhile, other alternatives likeJunior Firpo and Nelson Semedo have also been mentioned. Young, though, brings immense experience to the plate as he has been able to play at the top level for a very long time. After coming through the ranks at Watford, he made his name at Aston Villa before being signed by Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. His elevation up the football ladder helped him get a place in the England national team and he made 39 appearances for the national team since his debut in 2007. After initially being a winger, Young has been switched to a fullback position of late.
