Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the Italian giants are in the final stages of discussion with Manchester United over signing Ashley Young and the deal could be completed tonight.
Trusted sources at BBC Sport have recently reported that Young is no longer interested in extending his Manchester United contract and would want to leave Old Trafford this January, though he could also wait until the summer to move to Inter on a free transfer.
This story has developed really fast in the last 24 hours or so, and it now seems a real possibility that Manchester United captain is heading for an exit tonight.
Marotta has been quoted by Calciomercato as hinting Young could complete a move to the San Siro “tonight”, though there’s perhaps not quite enough context to the quotes to tell if he’s being entirely serious.
Politano and Young? At the moment, there are many rumours, we are all active,” he said.
“In general, you know very well that what hasn’t already been done can be done tonight.”
The former England international could be a fine signing for Inter, who would surely benefit from his experience and versatility.
One imagines the slower pace of the Italian game could also suit the 34-year-old at this stage of his career.
