Ashley Young is “not too sure” what the future holds for him at Manchester United after previously generating transfer talk.

Speculation during the winter window suggested that the England international was on borrowed time at Old Trafford, with Chinese Super League clubs reported to be circling.

Young was struggling for game time at that point, but has come back into favour under Jose Mourinho and skippered the Red Devils in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea.

He is now focused on ending the season as strongly as possible, but acknowledges that the decision may be taken to move him on in the summer.

The 31-year-old told the Telegraph: “There was of course, and there is always, speculation and especially when there is a transfer window and you are not playing.

“But I have always said that I want to play as much as possible. What the future holds I am not too sure. I am just concentrating on each game and when the manager calls on me I will give 100 per cent and look to play as well as I can.

“I am looking to play as many games as I can between now and the end of the season. That is what I am concentrating on now. That is the main focus for me and then we will see what happens.

“I have another year left on my contract and an option after that so if there is anything there to be discussed you would have to ask the manager.”

Young has been with United since completing a £17 million move from Aston Villa in 2011.

He has made 161 appearances for the club, but only 20 of those have come in a 2016-17 campaign that has seen him restricted to just six Premier League starts.
