Veteran England player Ashley Young has stunned his new Aston Villa teammates with his fitness levels since returning to the club this summer.
36-year-old Ashley Young re-signed for Villa this summer. He opted to return to Aston Villa ahead of another former club Watford. Burnley were also keen on signing him. Ashley Young became a free agent this summer after the expiration of his contract at Inter Milan whom the Englishman helped to win the Italian Serie A title for the first time since 2010.
Former Manchester United defender Ashley Young recently sealed a return to English football after re-joining Watford, one of the former clubs he played for before sealing his big move to Old Trafford a lot of years ago. The former England international star was initially signed as a winger by former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson but he was gradually converted to a defender after spending some years at the club. Young was a decent attacker during the early years of his career and also played for Aston Villa but with United having a lot of attackers in their team, he had to settle for a different role just so he could continue playing games.
After spending so many years at Old Trafford, Young was eventually allowed to leave the club after being sold by manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan some months ago. The English player was attracting interest from several clubs and chose Inter because he loved their project more than that of the other teams that approached him to sign for them. His decision paid off eventually after he had a role in helping Inter claim their first Serie A title after so many years.
Former Manchester United defender Ashley Young is reportedly a serious transfer target for English club Watford. The former England international star is also a former Watford player and he is now wanted by the club he played for before joining the Red Devils some years ago under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson. Although he is currently at current Italian Serie A Champions Inter Milan, Young has reportedly signaled his interest in returning to his boyhood club.
Many would wonder why Young would be showing interest in returning to Watford when he could continue to live on the Great career he has started already in Italy, but it is reportedly a personal decision from the player. Several reports recently disclosed that Inter offered Young a fresh one-year contract extension for him to continue his stay at the club but he is already well aware that he would not be the first-choice option at right-back as the position is currently owned by Achraf Hakimi, who is also being strongly linked with a move away from the Milan giants.
Former Manchester United defender Ashley Young has declared that he can’t wait to finally lift a league title this season and is elated that he will be doing it with Inter Milan in what is looking like his last season at the club. The former England international star has been a crucial part of Antonio Conte’s revolution at the club and joined a host of new signings last summer who have come up clutch for the club this season.
No other team has deserved to win the Italian Serie A title this season other than Inter Milan and it’s because of how they have played with so much unity, desire, passion, and dedication. They have displaced Juventus at the top of the helm and are set to stop the Old Lady’s title-winning streak that has stood for years now.
Inter Milan defender Ashley Young has revealed that it was a very hard task to have said no to the Italian Serie A giants when they came knocking on his door for a transfer to Italy. The former England international defensive star left English Premier League giants Manchester United and sealed a transfer to the Nerazzurri last year in a deal worth around €1.5 million and he has now opened up on the transfer.
Since signing for Inter Milan, the Englishman has featured for the Italian side on 54 occasions and has had a hand in 12 goals having scored four and provided eight assists so far. Speaking on Slimzilla Daily, Young said the opportunity to sign for Inter just came right at him and he could not even refuse it.
Inter Milan right-back Ashley Young is reportedly nearing an exit from the club and is already a transfer target to a couple of clubs across Europe, in China, and in the Major League Soccer. The former England and Manchester United star has continued to fall further down the pecking order at the club especially with Achraf Hakimi not looking like he will be slowing down anytime soon.
Hakimi completed a permanent transfer from Real Madrid last summer and has cemented himself as Inter Milan’s first-choice right-back since his permanent move, making it very difficult for Young to find his way to the first-team. Young is already getting closer to 35 and is currently being deemed surplus to requirements by manager Antonio Conte who reportedly no longer wants the former Aston Villa man to continue at Inter when his current deal expires this summer.
Inter Milan wing back Ashley Young could leave the club in the summer as his current deal with the Nerazzuri expires at the end of this season. Ashley Young signed a deal until the end of this season when he signed for Inter Milan from Premier League giants Manchester United. According to FCInterNews.it, Ashley Young is on course to leave Inter Milan this summer and that the club has targeted Simone Bastoni as the potential replacement for him. Simone Bastoni has had a good season for newly promoted team Spezia until this point and he could join the big league by moving to Inter Milan later this year.
The publication from FCInter News revealed that Inter Milan officials want to carry out a major surgery on the playing squad at Inter Milan ahead of next season and that the club wants to also reduce the high wage bill. Ashley Young earns around €3m on a yearly basis and Inter Milan are not willing to renew his contract. Instead, Inter Milan would go for someone like Simone Bastoni, who earns around 10% of what Ashley Young is being paid.
Inter Milan fullback Ashley Young enjoyed a very good career at Premier League giants Manchester United before he left the club to join the Nerazzuri at the start of the year. Inter Milan paid around €1m to sign the 35-year-old player during the 2020 January transfer window. Ashley Young is a utility player who can play either as a winger on the left or right side of attack and can also play either as a left fullback or as a right fullback plus the fact that he can perform well as a left wing back or as a right wing back.
Ashley Young spent the best part of his 17-year old professional career at Manchester United. He signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2011 following a four-year stay with Aston Villa. While he was at Manchester United, Ashley Young won the Premier League title in the final season of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson during the 2012/2013 campaign. He also won the Europa League, the Capital One Cup, the Community Shield and the FA Cup title in his nine years at the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United defender Ashley Young has said that a top-four challenge is not good enough for the Red Devils and they should be challenging for trophies instead. The Mancunian giants ended the current Premier League season in a disappointment as they finished sixth on the table and that has eluded them of Champions League football next season.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Young said that the club need to be aiming for trophies rather than pushing for the top four and that itself remains a disappointment. He added that the recently concluded campaign has been a let-down with the team failing to make the Champions League places despite receiving help from the sides around them.
