  • Ashley Young 'unhappy' with Man Utd chiefs after Inter Milan transfer is blocked
    The Red Devils' captain is understood to have already agreed to join the Serie A giants when his contract expires in the summer, but wants to complete the move before the end of January
    joining Inter Milan during the current transfer window, according to reports.
    Red Devils' captain Young is believed to have already agreed to join the Serie A club as a free agent when his contract expires at the end of the season.
    However, it is understood that the former England international hopes to link up with Antonio Conte's side before the end of January.
    Although Inter are thought to be prepared to pay a fee to bring the 34-year-old to the San Siro as soon as possible, The Daily Mail reports that United are currently unwilling to let him leave this month.
    According to the publication, the Premier League club do not want to lose Young due to the number of defensive injuries they have, leaving the veteran frustrated.
    Centre-back Harry Maguire is the latest defender to be sidelined, joining the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo, after he suffered a hip injury in the FA Cup tie against Wolves last season.
    Young could still be allowed to depart before the window closes if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is able to bolster his squad, but it is also claimed that United also recognise that his leadership qualities would be missed if he left.
    He is understood to have turned down the chance to remain at Old Trafford for a further 12 months when he was offered a contract extension on Thursday.
    Completing a move to Inter would see Young follow former United team-mates Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to the San Siro.
    He joined United from Aston Villa in 2011 for a fee of around £17m and has gone on to make 261 appearances for the Red Devils.
    During his time with the club, the former Watford man has won the Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.
    The winger turned full-back has featured in just 18 games this season and was left out of the squad for the Carabao Cup semi-final against Manchester City on Tuesday.
    Addressing Young's future after the game, Solskjaer said: "Tonight is not the time to talk about players leaving.
    "We can’t weaken ourselves, we have to strengthen ourselves."
