Inter Milan Sign Ashley Young On Initial Six-Month Deal

Inter Milan have completed the signing of Ashley Young from Manchester United for £1.28m on an initial six-month deal, with an option to extend for a further season.

The 34-year-old had missed the club’s past three games having made clear his desire to leave Old Trafford.

Very excited to join @Inter and begin this new challenge. Can’t wait to get started,” Young wrote on his Twitter page.

He played 261 times for United in his eight-and-a-half-year stay at the club and was club captain this season, but only started 10 league games in 2019-20.

Young, who has 39 England caps was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson from Aston Villa in 2011 and won the Premier League in 2012-13, the FA Cup in 2015-16, and both the League Cup and Europa League in 2016-17.

He will wear the number 15 shirt and becomes the third United player to move to Inter in the last six months after Romelu Lukaku who signed permanently last August and Alexis Sanchez who is on a season-long loan from the Red Devils.

Inter who are currently managed by former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte are second in Serie A, two points adrift of Juventus and are aiming to win their first Serie A title since 2010.
