Man Utd winger Young weighing up £5.25m-a-year China offer

Ashley Young is believed to be considering a big-money move to the Chinese Super League.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Manchester United winger is weighing up an offer from Shandong Luneng of £5.25million per year.

It is understood that Young, 31, has been offered a three-year deal which would see his earnings in the Far East surpass £15m.

Young is currently contracted with the Red Devils until the summer of 2018 but he has hardly featured for Jose Mourinho this season and may be interested in the riches on offer in China.

Shandong are coached by former Bayern Munich, VfL Wolfsburg and Fulham boss Felix Magath and currently house former Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.
