Manchester United’s Ashley Young has come in for heavy criticism from large portions of the Old Trafford crowds in recent seasons, but under Louis van Gaal its fair to say he has flourished – particularly in the left wing-back role in which he looks tailor-made for.
According to ESPN, Manchester United officials have opened contract talks with the 29-year old who has just over a year left to run on his current contract.
It is believed that Van Gaal is hugely impressed with the Englishman’s versatility, after playing in numerous positions throughout the campaign so far. The Old Trafford hierarchy want him tied down to a new long-term contract as soon as possible, and for me he more than deserves a new contract at the club due to his recent performances.
