Manchester United Player Wanted By Shandong Luneng

Chinese Super League outfit Shandong Luneng are looking to continue the lavish spending that is running rampant in the Far East over the past year and a Manchester United player is their top target.

Ashley Young is believed to be the United player that is being coveted by the outfit from the Orient, with the 31-year-old facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford, having not featured regularly in Jose Mourinho's first team, this season.

Sunsport are reporting that United are standing firm on their stance of not selling the former Aston Villa winger, especially with a busy second half of the season coming up, with crucial games in the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League and League Cup on the horizon. Squad rotation will be crucial to Jose Mourinho and the experience of a veteran such as Young will be vital.

It is believed there are several Premier League clubs all interested in securing the signature of Young, too, although any deal domestically is likely to be a loan if United do budge from their current position. Burnley, Crystal Palace, West Brom and Young's former team Watford are queuing up to bring the England international aboard for the remainder of the campaign.


Young arrive at Old Trafford from Villa Park in an £18m deal in 2011. His current contract expires in 2018 with an option to extend by another year.
