Inter Milan are preparing a shock raid on Manchester United with former England international Ashley Young the target according to the Daily Mirror.

And they aren’t the only club interested; rivals for the Champions League places AS Roma are also keeping an eye on Young’s situation following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

The 33-year-old winger converted into a full-back is out of contract next summer and can open negotiations with overseas clubs from today with the Nerazzurri keen to offer him a deal. Internazionale finished the first half of the Serie A season in third while Roma were sixth.

United tried to resolve the contract impasse before the transfer window opened with the Premier League club keen to extend his current £130,000 per week deal by a further 12 months.

Amid the turmoil of Mourinho’s collapsing reign, Young captained the side as the Portuguese clashed with club-record signing Paul Pogba, 25. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer maintained equilibrium by retaining Young as captain since taking over as interim boss for the remainder of the season.

The former Watford and Aston Villa man has made over 200 appearances for United since moving to Old Trafford in 2011 in a £20m deal, winning 39 England caps and scoring 7 goals.
