Manchester United have triggered a clause in Ashley Young’s contract which has seen his contract be extended by a further year, keeping him at the club until 2019.
Ashley Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa in 2011 and has gone on to be a big success at Old Trafford.
The 32-year-old was a winger when he first joined but now plays more as a full-back.
In his seven years in Manchester, Young has won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.
His performances have been good enough to bring him back into the England fold with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate naming him in his squad for this month’s friendly matches against the Netherlands and Italy.
Mourinho clearly has faith in Young who has played in 29 matches this season, scoring two goals.
By being an ever-present for Man United and returning to the England squad, Ashley Young is proving that age is just a number.
