Young to complete £17m United move
Ashley Young is expected to tie up his £17m move to Manchester United this week when the personal terms are finalised with the midfielder. The Old Trafford club hope to make an announcement in the next few days that they have signed the 25-year-old England winger for whom a deal has been in place for some time with Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, The Independent also claims United are also trying to tie down a deal for Lens' 18-year-old central defender Raphael Varane in the next few days, although they could face a challenge from Real Madrid.

The Telegraph claims Barcelona have won the race with United and City to sign Alexis Sanchez. The Chile winger is expected to complete a £32million move to the European champions from Udinese this week.

In other news, Javier Hernandez has vowed to be an even better player next season after a stunning debut campaign in England.
