Ashley Young, Manchester United’s club captain, is set to move to Italy and join Internazionale after the two clubs agreed a £1.3m deal.

It is understood United will receive an additional, undisclosed fee if Young wins the Serie A under Antonio Conte at Inter this season.

Young, whose Old Trafford contract only has a few months left to run, agreed personal terms with Inter last week but preferred to move immediately rather than as a free agent this summer.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was initially reluctant to let the experienced 34-year-old leave without first signing a replacement.

Once Inter’s interest became public, Young was offered a new one-year contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford, which he subsequently rejected.

Solskjaer has now sanctioned Young’s move, with the versatile full-back searching for more regular first-team minutes.

A £17m signing from Aston Villa in 2011, Young has fallen down United’s full back pecking order behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw.

Young is reunited with former team-mate Romelu Lukaku at the Giuseppe Meazza, while United forward Alexis Sanchez is on loan with the Serie A leaders.
