England locker room convinced Villa ace Young going to Man Utd

Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Aston Villa winger Ashley Young. The Sun says United are edging closer to landing the England ace for £25 million.

And boss Alex Ferguson is set to offer the Aston Villa winger a whopping £100,000 a week.

Young, who starred for England against Wales and Ghana, has already rejected a new Villa deal worth £80,000 a week.

An England insider said: "Him moving to Manchester United was the talk of the dressing room.

"You can see why United want him."

The former Watford ace, 25, has 14 months left on his current £65,000-a- week Villa deal.

But he has long been a transfer target for Liverpool and Tottenham.

Now Fergie has entered the race for his signature and hopes to entice him with a massive pay hike.
