Manchester United have done some exciting business in the transfer window this summer and have been able to get some of the best talents on the planet to the side even without Champions League football.
The new manager, Jose Mourinho, has the ability to get the best out of his team and he will need to have a squad that suits his style of play at any club he goes.
He will do the same at Manchester United as he will now start letting players go out of the club to try and shape his squad ahead of the next season.
The manager has all but completed his additions to the squad and will now have to look at who will not fit the bill at the club next season.
One such player who is linked with a move away from the club this summer is English midfielder/defender Ashley Young.
Reports have linked the 31-year old with a move to Crystal Palace who are eying Young as a replacement for Yannic Bolasie who moved to Everton earlier this week.
It is reported that Crystal Palace identified Young as a replacement even before Bolasie’s deal was done and that they were reportedly interested in a loan deal for the 31-year old.
But Jose Mourinho, who wants to clear out as many players as possible from Old Trafford has reportedly revealed that he will not let the player leave on a loan this summer. It is reported that the manager, however, is ready to let the player go for a permanent switch.
In his four years since his move from Aston Villa on a £18m deal, Young has played in almost every position on the wings for the club and has been a versatile option in midfield.
However, Mourinho had no place for the 31-year old in his squad for the game against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday which shows that Young may not have a place in Old Trafford based club’s squad next season.
So a move to Palace would be beneficial for both parties. At his age with just two years left on his contract, he will also be available on the cheap and may not be a bad option for Pardew next season.
Do you think Manchester United should sell Ashley Young this summer?
