Inter In Talks To Sign Ashley Young From Manchester United
Ashley Young could be the latest Manchester United player to swap England for Italy with reports that Inter are in talks to take the full-back to Serie A in January.
The 34-year-old has been overtaken by Aaron Wan-Bissaka as the club's first choice right back this season and with just five months until his contract is over it looks like the club will cash in on the player this month.
According to reports in Italy the player is ready to accept a move to the Serie A leaders and the clubs have began talks over the move.
Antonio Conte's side signed Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal at the beginning of August, two years after the Italian tried to sign the striker for Chelsea, before adding Alexis Sanchez later in the summer window.
The Chilean forward moved to the San Siro on a loan deal and Chris Smalling also moved to Italy on a temporary deal, joining AS Roma for the season.
Young could be the fourth player to move from United to Italy this season and Jesse Lingard could be the fifth, with the midfielder linked with a move to AC Milan.

Club captain Young joined from Aston Villa in 2011, being signed by Sir Alex Ferguson, and has made 261 appearances for the Red Devils.
He started life as a winger and has won the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League during his nine years at Old Trafford.
In recent years he moved to full back and this season has played less, although he's still started 10 games in the league for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
Solskjaer has gone about getting rid of some of the older players, and unwanted players, in the squad during his year as manager, selling Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia, as well as Lukaku and Sanchez.
With Wan-Bissaka firmly the first choice right back, Diogo Dalot coming back from injury and Timothy Fosu-Mensah soon available the manager has clearly decided he can afford to lose Young.
The club's form shows that the next part of the rebuild is to buy more quality to help boost the current team, with the side in need of a central midfielder or two for certain.
