Jose Mourinho Looks to Agree £10m-a-year Winger Deal
CHINESE SUPER LEAGUE outfit Shandong Luneng are reportedly ready to pay Manchester United winger Ashley Young £10m-a-year.
The Sun claim the wealthy Far East outfit are desperate to snap up the experienced Premier League star and are willing to pay him just over £192,000-a-week.
Young has featured in just ten games this season and his Old Trafford future looks in doubt.
However, it’s claimed United chief Jose Mourinho is reluctant to let Young leave given his ample Premier League experience.
Shandong Luneng aren’t the only club vying for Young’s signature.
West Brom, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Watford have all made contact with United about taking him on loan.
Young was snapped up from Aston Villa in 2011 for £17m.
He’s made 113 appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals in the process.
The 31-year-old is under contact at Old Trafford until June 2018.
Not played much
United may also see it as a chance to cash in on Young – and bank more money from the player than the might have expected , to reinvest in the summer on another huge spending spree.
Antoine Griezmann has been heavily linked with a blockbuster move, and now Mourinho reportedly wants Nemanja Matic to add to his midfield after the £24 million move Morgan Schneiderlin made to Everton.
