If BBC’s sources are to be believed, Ashley Young will no longer play for Manchester United.

The breaking story comes from the BBC’s Simon Stone via Twitter, who confirmed on via his social media account that Inter Milan have agreed to pay a transfer fee of £1.3m to secure the services of Ashley Young – who is now all set for a January exit. Simon Stone added in a follow-up tweet that England international will have his medical tomorrow.

Like always, the deal is still subject to the player and the club agreeing to the personal terms and would also depend on whether Young passes the medical – which shouldn’t be a big deal.

Credit where it’s due. To get even a minimal fee for a 34-year-old with a winding down contract is a pretty decent business – while the Reds could be owed even more money if Inter can win the Serie A this term.

As for Youngy, he has been a wonderful servant to United, though the fact that he refused to play for the club in order to push through his move to Milan does sting a little. The fans were all willing to wish him well up until that point, though for many, those bridges were now burned.

Either way, we appreciate everything he’s done for us, though the timing does feel right to let him go.

Cheers for everything, Youngy!
