Ashley Young Could Be Heading Out

Ashley Young could yet be a shock casualty in the summer 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 the left-sided Young could even be moved on.

Solskjaer has high hopes for Portuguese starlet Diogo Dalot, while Ashley 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.

Ashley 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.
