Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit Inter Miami and Watford are in a battle to sign England international Ashley Young this summer. This is according to the publication from the stables of The Sun. It was revealed that the two teams will battle it out for the right to sign Young on a free transfer.

Young, 35, has a few weeks left on his current deal at recently crowned Italian Serie A champions Inter Milan and it is almost certain that the Nerazzuri won’t offer him a new deal when the current contract expires next month.

Premier League legend David Beckham would be hoping that he can use his Manchester United connections to secure the signing of Young for Inter Miami ahead of newly promoted Premier League club Watford. David Beckham is the co-owner of Inter Miami in the MLS and former Manchester United teammate Phil Neville is the club’s manager.

Neville and David Beckham have to contend with the Hornets in the race to sign Young. England international Young has been very vocal about playing again for Watford. He made an appearance on Watford’s Golden Tales podcast in October 2020. On the podcast, the Inter Milan fullback talked about going back to play for Watford.

Young started his career with the Hornets before moving to Aston Villa and then Manchester United. He left the Red Devils to sign for Inter Milan at the start of last year. He penned a deal that runs until this summer at the San Siro.

The England international would find it hard to resist the lure of going back to where it all started for him especially with Watford back in the Premier League after a solitary season in the English Championship. David Beckham and Inter Miami will need to convince the player to do otherwise.
