Man United are reportedly on the verge of securing the long-term future of Ashley Young after agreeing a three-year extension.
According to the Daily Mail, the England international will get £120,000 per week over the three-year deal, which ultimately works out to be £18.72m over that period.
While some may question the amount of money invested in the 30-year-old, United boss Louis Van Gaal clearly sees him as an important part of his squad moving forward.
The Premier League giants have added Memphis Depay already this summer, but the Dutch tactician has conceded that he still needs pace and creativity in the final third.
Young will offer that to an extent, but even his coach admitted that he isn’t on the same level as the likes of Neymar and if United are to be contenders, they need more class.
Nevertheless, the former Aston Villa star will continue to play a role and be versatile in offering an option in numerous positions across the field and the news will come as a blow to Tottenham who had reportedly been interested in signing him this summer.
