Ashley Young completes Manchester United Transfer

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has completed his much hyped move to Manchester United. The English international signed a five year contract at Old Trafford reportedly worth 19 million Euros. Young proved to be a crucial player at Villa, scoring 38 goals in his some 190 appearances.

Villa boss Alex McLeish was amongst the many people to praise Young for being picked up by such a big club. The new United man plays similar to Nani and Valencia, and will most likely play between them in an attacking midfield role, although thats not to say we won't see him feature on the wing some time or another. This season, injury proved to be a major setback for United, especially for Valencia, who was sidelined for most of the season. The addition f Young will provide some much needed relief for United in this situation, if it arises.

Young proves to be the second signing in United's transfer campaign. The Devils signed young defender Phil Jones from Balckburn earlier on, supplementing and already rock solid defence. The future looks bright for United!
