Villa reveal Ashley Young's asking price to United
Published 23:01 23/05/11 By James Nursey - EXCLUSIVE
Manchester United have made their move for Ashley Young - and his Aston Villa team-mate Darren Bent reckons the England ace is on his way.
United are favourites to land the £15million-rated contract rebel, even though they are still waiting for permission to talk to him.
Young, who has a year to run on his contract, flew out on holiday yesterday but has already turned down a new deal from Villa.
And as the club have now told United what they would expect to receive for Young, his club and international colleague Bent fears a departure is inevitable.
Bent said: "Every day, I'm in his ear going: 'Please just give us one more year, one more year, one more year'!
"I'm sure it's hard. When you've got teams like Manchester United and other Champions League sides coming in for him, then it makes it very difficult.
"I don't know if it's a done deal yet but at the same time when Manchester United and Chelsea and those kind of clubs come calling, it makes it difficult."
