Manchester United player Ashley Young could join Premier League rivals Crystal Palace this summer, according to bookies.
The Red Devils winger is yet to know his fate as coach Jose Mourinho remains undecided over his future at the club. Alan Pardew is believed to be interested in the youngster, especially as he is about to lose Yannick Bolasie to Everton on a £25 million deal.
There are reports that Young is high up on the shortlist to replace the talented winger who is keen on joining a strengthening Everton squad. Palace could land the 31-year old, even with odds of 9/5 according to BetStars. The report say that only Crsytal Palace is the frontrunner in the emerging list of interested clubs. With Jose Mourinho spoilt for choice in the attack, it is very unlikely that the player would played only 14 games last season would get enough calls this season. Since joining in the summer of 2011 for £18 million from Aston Villa, Young has had his fair share of good time under Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
Palace are in the news as they are keen on brining in Christian Benteke from Liverpool as Pardew hopes to bolster his attacking options. They signed Englishman Andros Townsend from Newcastle earlier this summer after the Magpies were relegated to the English championship. However, the move of Bolasie leaves them desperate to snap Ashley Young. Mourinho is believed would not object to the deal, especially after signing Paul Pogba from Juventus for a world record fee of £89 million. Palace are aware of the increased competition from their rivals in the Premier League, hence their efforts at ensuring they have a tight squad to handle the opposition this season.
