Ashley Young Linked To Man Utd & Spurs


Here we go again...! The press seem to want to facilitate a transfer for Ashley Young ! The Daily Star have a report by Paul Hetherington claiming that Manchester United are set to offer 25million for the Villa and England winger. Some reports are claiming that Ash is Sir Alex Chewalot's number one summer target and lets face it, after the massive sale of Ronaldo they have the funds. But 25million?

The worry is it is all well and good us as fans saying no way, and it is all well and good the club saying he isn't for sale, but as we saw with Dwight Yorke when the Old Trafford lot come knocking, the players want to go.

The Star go on to claim that Barcelona are also interested in the 24-year-old former Watford player. The one thing on our side is he has a long contract having agreed better terms last season.

The People also carry the same link.

Meanwhile, same player, different club! The Daily Mail claim that Spurs want Ashley Young and are prepared to offer up a 25million swap deal.

The report, by Joe Bernstein suggests Spurs want to offer David Bentley + cash to take the winger to London.

The Mail also claims that if he fails to lure Young he'll compete with Villa for Boro winger Stewart Downing although Appy Arry has to raise money before spending money. They also claim that Robbie Keane linked to Villa a few weeks back, is also available.

One line in the Mail does cause a slight worry! O'Neill is loath to lose his brightest young star but accepts he will face a fight to keep the Stevenage-born player, who fancies a move to London.

Chelsea have also been linked a few times this summer.

Vital Villa asked, in a poll on 06 June of this year:

At What Price Would You Sell Ashley Young?

No price, would not sell 54%
15million 18%
40million 14%
30million 10%
20million 4%

yes i do have to agree with the post on the yorke issue fear, id hate young to leave, but they majority vote saying theyd sell for 15m is a joke, in todays hyped transfer prices hes got to be worth at leat 25-30M, and seriously i have not that many worries, ash would be made to see out some of that 3 year extension he signed, and carew wellllll, but after the initial shock of reading two of our most influencial players are on the move, i do realise that everyone is replacable, and if martin can bring a carew and a young in once, he can do it again, fans support the club and players support themselves, occosionaly once in a blue moon does any set of fans have a relationship like carews and the villa fans, in mon i trust

Unsurprising that Ash is being linked with UTD again. Hopefully (as you say) its just paper talk. If they made a bid there would be no stopping him moving. No less than 28m. This young German we've been linked with MESUT OZIL looks excellent and just the sort of player we need. Along with VELOSO and DELPH, they would be a perfect start to our summer signings. If we make some serious signings before a bid comes in for ASH then it may give him something to think about

The Spurs link for Ashley is a non starter IMO, but I always feared that once ronaldo went United may look to Ashley. I think United is at the moment probably the only club Ash would leave Villa for. If the worse happens,then we MUST stick out for 30m considering the ridiculous figure paid for pretty boy. We would then need to spend that money plus the Barry money plus another 25m IMO on quality.

the daily star you villa people comment on daily star articles you northern jokers but dont get all mouthy just cos u had a half decent season u were up there cos we started so badly and i bet u what ever currency u middle landers use we ***** all over u this year u long ball merchants
Hackspur
I'm getting fed up of links of the dodgy dealer 'Arry to our players. Young for a start wouldnt go to Spurs, He's an Arsenal fan, and he rejected the move to spurs to join villa at the time even though spurs offered him a better contract. Plus we dont want spurs dead wood like Bentley.

Hackspur Villa aren't a northern team mate they're midlands. In all honesty i'd love Ashley Young at Spurs, we should have signed him 2 years ago when he was stalling signing for Villa when he knew of our interest but we opted for Kevin Prince-Boateng and everything turned out fine... Young is a class act, we all knew that when he was at Watford so don't give it the whole "we discovered his talent" b0ll0cks but at the same time, I think Villa are definitely nailed on to keep him. Even with European football again this season Villa you don't have the same pull as a big London club and never will but I think Young is fairly settled at Villa park and will opt to move unless a top 4 side come in for him and good luck to you, at the end of the day, he's your player and no-one can force you to sell him if you don't want to

thing is our best players will be linked with other teams, better than the times when we have players no one is interested, key is to convince them they can fulfil their ambitions here I guess..!

Exil we probably dont have the same pull as the arse and chelsea but dont get cocky son, we do just fine. Compare the P.L records of SPurs and villa you dope. This is the sort of thing that really irritates other supporters. The difference between what spurs supporters think their club is in the scheme of things, compared to what it actually is getting bigger by the day if idiot comments like yours are anything to go by

Exil, I think your comments were reasonably fair, even if slightly condescending. However, it's refreshing to know that there are some level headed Spurs fans. You know what I mean; our club's bigger than yours and all that...

Exil started off so well looking like one of the few sensible/mature Spurs fans and then his true colours were shown!! He supported Arsenal as a kid and blew you guys out to come and play for MON. We both offered the same amount and he chose us. Get over it you jealous loser. His talent was always there but we nurtured it. Young PFA player of the year and won Premiership Player Of The Month 3 times in a calendar year, a feat never before accomplished. All under the guidance of MON and John Robertson who played the same role back in his playing days.

If it is to Man Utd we need to be getting 30m plus either Park or Nani to replace him. The guy is contracted for 4 years - seems to enjoy it, getting England recognition etc. I worry what knock on effects are - with no Barry, Laursen and Young would the likes of Carew or Gabby hang about (Gabby seems to be his best mate)

Spurs were never in the running for Young. A fee was never agreed because we didnt want to take a chance on the player, Villa did. Being an Arse supporter doesnt mean a whole lot. He isnt a little boy any more lol. This is his career. It was our mistake in not seeing thereal talent of the lad and now its gonna cost us 2 and a half times more to get him than it originalywould have. I cant believe how annoying Villa fans are. F.u.c.k. witts

I think alot of people just need to calm down a bit because this is all getting a bit stupid aint it. Both clubs have great history and are trying to play the game in the right way. We have the same aspirations as each other while improving ourselves trying to help the English game by developing British players. While my team fell quite spectacularly at the first hurdle i was still none the less over joyed that you fought hard throughout the season in much the same way i expect spurs to fight week in week out. The transfer Market is a very fickle mistress (Which every fan of football is no doubt aware of) which is highlighted every season by apparent non sensical signings each summer with Ronaldo going from one of the most succesful sides in football to one that as of late has been running on empty. As fans we see our clubs like our children which we would fight for to the bitter end and as such i would no more wish to put down your child as i would your team or have the same done to mine. So i just hope that this name calling on both sides could die down and we can concentrate on football than on rows brought out by journalists that know pritty much nothing about each team. Good luck for next season lads and i hope i bit of sence on both sides can be restored.

Well said zzz. No Villa fan is going to agree that Spurs are bigger than Villa and likewise no Spurs fan is going to state that Villa are bigger than Spurs so lets just give up on the petty arguing and let the football do the talking. This is all paper talk anyway. How many Spurs players have Villa been linked to! How many Villa players have Spurs been linked to! This is just lazy journalism, come on you lazy gets, come up with something new! No doubt tomorrow Villa will be linked to half the Spurs team. Spurs will be after half the Everton team and Everton will be after a load of Villa players and Man City will no doubt be about to put an offer in for the entire team of the season.
