Exit for Man Utd veteran confirmed as Inter Milan announce signing

Ashley Young TEAMtalk

Inter Milan have officially confirmed the signing of Ashley Young from Manchester United on a deal until the end of the season.

Young leaves United after eight-and-a-half seasons at Old Trafford, in which he made 261 appearances, scoring 19 goals.

Young won the Premier League title, as well as the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League once each with the Red Devils.

It was announced on Thursday that Inter had agreed a €1.5m fee with United for the transfer of the wing-back, who subsequently travelled to Milan for a medical on Friday.

The deal has now been formalised and made official by both clubs – who do business yet again after Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku both made the same move in the summer.

Young has signed a six-month contract at San Siro, and has the option to extend that stay by a further year should both player and club be satisfied.

He has selected the number 15 shirt at Inter, where he becomes the first Englishman to represent the club since Paul Ince, and only the third in history (with Gerry Hitchens being the first).

Young has been replaced as Manchester United captain by Harry Maguire.
