Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal turned an inconsistent Ashley Young into a rejuvenated figure last season.
If reports are anything to go by then the Dutch manager perhaps firmly believes that the England international can play a key role not just next season but for a few years.
The 30-year-old playmaker who ousted record signing Angel di Maria from starting XI last season had entered the final year of his contract.
However, sources at ESPN suggest that the former Aston Villa star has agreed terms of a new three year contract with the Red Devils and will seal the deal this week.
In 23 league starts last season, Young scored 2 goals and provided 5 assists and his never giving up attitude was much appreciated by the fans.
Not to forget, Manchester United have secured signing of a top attacker Memphis Depay who also prefers playing as a left winger.
Van Gaal has used both Young and Depay well in pre-season and it will not come as a surprise if the duo prove to be fruitful for United next season.
