Roma look to Ashley Young

Roma are planning a January offer for Manchester United left-back Ashley Young, according to English newspapers.

The 33-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and recently became captain, but negotiations on a new one-year deal appear to be at a standstill.

According to The Sun, Roma maintain they can make a quick swoop for Young in the January transfer window, or at least put down roots for a free transfer next summer.

The England international has been at Old Trafford since 2011, previously playing for Aston Villa and Watford.

He is primarily a left-back, but can also play on the right or in a more advanced role.
