Today Sport's : Premier League/Man United to fight Liverpool for Young

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is plotting a move to beat Liverpool to Aston Villa winger Ashley Young.

The 25-year-old's impressive performances for both club and country have attracted interest from clubs such as Liverpool.

Reds sporting director Daniel Comolli has earmarked Young as the top summer target but according to the Daily Mirror, they now have a competitor in the form of the Red Devils.

United supremo Sir Alex Ferguson is already planning to strengthen his squad in the summer with Young reportedly one of his three top targets.

Villa on the other hand are expected to resist selling their prized asset, whose value has sky-rocketed over the past few seasons.

But the decision whether to sell Young is much dependent on whether the club play in the Barclays Premier League next season as they are currently16th in the table - just two points off the relegation zone.If they do, manager Gerard Houllier would be desperate to keep Young at Villa Park as he looks to rebuild the squad for next season.
