An exclusive report by The Sun revealed that United star player Ashley Young is the latest Premier League player being targeted by a mega-rich Chinese club.
With players like Oscar and Mikel already in China this month, it was revealed that due to the big money coming from China, a number of Premier League clubs are worried about losing some of their top talent.
The Sun confirmed that Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng are putting to the table an offer to sign Man United star Ashley Young this January.
This season so far, Young has started just five games for Mourinho side with only two of them coming in the Premier League. The player struggled to force his way into the plans of the Portuguese tactician.
Since that’s the case, it isn’t wise keeping a valuable asset on the bench when there’s potential money on the table. With just 18 months remaining on his Old Trafford deal, the 31-year-old is unlikely to have a future at the Old Trafford club.
The England International’s best performances for the red devils this season have come from right-back. Unfortunately, Antonio Valencia has made that position his own at Old Trafford and even Mourinho is likely seeking a younger long term replacement in that position. That therefore made it seem like if Young has nothing left to offer Man United.
Even if no offer from China, it is very likely Young will move away. But since the offer is here, this is a big opportunity for the Old Trafford club to make massive money. .
