Talks between Ashley Young’s representatives and Shandong Luneng have reportedly broken down.
The Independent claim that Young will now stay at Manchester United until the end of the season despite reports on Thursday morning that he would move before next week’s Chinese deadline day and sign a three-year contract worth £230,000 a week.
Young has not started a Premier League game since November but has played back-to-back games against Blackburn and Saint-Etienne in cup competition.
“I am a player who wants to play week in, week out. Every player in the squad wants to play,” said Young after victory over the French side. “The manager said I was man of the match at Blackburn and it was nice to get a compliment.
“I am concentrating on my football. I am here at United for the rest of the season and another year, so I am concentrating on everything here.”
