Two in two have flourished under the nurturing hands of Inter’s Antonio Conte, and the manager has deemed it fit to add one more, in Man Utd skipper Ashley Young.
Young has completed his €1.5 million move from Manchester United to Serie A side Inter. With Harry Maguire now set to take the captain armband in his absence.
The 34-year-old follows in the footstep of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, who both moved to San Siro in the past summer.
The deal was made public by the club today, in a statement which read: “Ashley Young is officially an Inter player. The 34-year-old English defender arrives from Manchester United and has signed a contract lasting until 30 June 2020 with an option to extend for a further season.”
Young will wear the number 15 as confirmed by the club, as he looks to aid his new manager and team keep up the fight against Serie A reigning champions Juventus.
Young made 261 appearances for United since joining from Aston Villa in 2011. Scoring a total of 19 goals and providing 43 assists in the process.
He won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Community Shield, and Europa League, and had been captain of the club for the past three seasons.
Ashley Young becomes the third Manchester United player to leave for Inter Milan since Antonio Conte’s reign at the club began, and could very well not be the last. With reports teammate, Nemanja Matic could follow suit.
