Inter Milan are in talks with Manchester United over signing Ashley Young, and are ready to offer the England international an 18-month contract, according to Sky in Italy.

It is understood the 34-year-old United captain has already shown a desire to make a move to Italy.

Young has six months left to run on his existing United deal, after signing a one-year extension in February 2019.

Inter are willing to offer him a deal which will run until June 2021.

It is not yet clear whether Manchester United will let the defender leave on a free transfer at the end of the season or ask for a fee for a January move.

Young would become the third United player to join Antonio Conte's side inside a year following the transfers of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Young has made 12 appearances in all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so far this season.
