MANCHESTER –Inter Milan have signed former England international Ashley Young from Manchester United on a six month contract, the Serie A club said on Friday.
Inter have an option to extend the deal for Young for a further season and he joins up with former Old Trafford team mates Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. British media reports said Inter had paid a fee of 1.5 million euros ($1.66 million) to United.
Young, 34, who has converted to fullback after beginning his career as a winger, was out of contract at United at the end of this season.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Friday that the club was not going to stand in the way of allowing Young to move to the Italian giants.
"Ashley's mindset was that he wanted to try a new adventure and he's approaching 35 now. He's done a fantastic job and he's served this club fantastically," Solskjaer said.
