Goal.

The 28-year-old has slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford under David Moyes this term, with the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Danny Welbeck, Nani and Antonio Valencia believed to be some distance clear in the battle for starting a berth.

Having earned more headlines for his simulation than ability, United are now ready to cut their losses this winter.

Young made an impressive start to life with the Red Devils following his £17m arrival from Aston Villa just over two years ago, but has drifted away from the first-team as a result of injuries and inconsistent form.

The wide-man’s £110,000-per-week earnings are also an issue, with Moyes believing that he is not providing the necessary contribution to justify such a salary.

It’s likely that a number of Premier League sides will be keen on Young, and Newcastle have already been mooted as a potential suitor.

The player himself may also be eager to make a move, with regular playing time in the build-up to the 2014 World Cup necessary if he is to make himself a part of Roy Hodgson’s plans.

Does Ashley Young have a Manchester United future?
