Ashley Young Linked To Man Utd & Spurs

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.
