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%
