With the Chinese Super League growing day by day through signing big name stars and spending unbelievable amounts of money, rumours of them being linked with quality players keep increasing with each passing day.

The latest among those have seen their clubs being linked with Ashley Young, and Shandong Luneng are the club believed to be the ones keenly interested in the Old Trafford winger.

However, according to sources from Sky Sports, they are not in a hurry to rush forward with the deal, as the Chinese transfer market stays open for another month to come.

Ashley Young, who was bought from Villa in 2011, has had a low season under Mourinho so far, and has been far away from the Portuguese manager’s plans, due to which he has not started a game for over 2 months now.

Shandong have already signed a player from the EPL in the summer in the form of Graziano Pelle, who plays alongside former Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse. This star duo is currently managed by Ex-Fulham boss Felix Magath. The team are currently third bottom in the 16 team Super league, and a player coming from Manchester United might not fancy the odds of joining such a club as of now.

Having scored 14 goals in a period of five and a half years in 151 appearances, Young is heavily out of play time at United this season, and with over one and a half year left in his contract, the English winger’s future hangs in his own hands and the choice he makes.
