Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly keen to sign Aston Villa winger Ashley Young who has also attracted interests from Liverpool.
So, it seems there could be a bidding war between the Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool for the 25-year-old Villa star at the end of the season.
According to a report published in The Times, Young is high on the target list of Manchester United for the summer transfer window with Ferguson seemingly impressed by the performance of the former Watford player.
It is understood that Ferguson would do some serious business this summer with some of his long-time soldiers like Giggs, Scholes approaching towards the end of their career.
Similarly, Liverpool would also like to strengthen their squad before heading into a revival mission next season.
Interests from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool would provide Villa officials some more grounds to make some quick cash in on one of their prized assets. Here, it is noteworthy that Ashley Young has not yet put pen on paper to extend his current contract which expires in Summer 2012.
