Cape Town - Manchester United have offered veteran winger Ashley Young a one-year contract extension, according to Sky Sports News.
Sport24 reported that Inter Milan have opened talks with the Premier League giants on acquiring the wingers services on a permanent basis.
The former Aston Villa winger has six-months left on his current deal with the Red Devils.
However, United are now keen to hold onto the player as the Serie A giants are keen to have the 34-year-old in the January transfer window.
The Red Devils have so far experienced a roller coaster campaign and losing Young's experience could mean Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would need to further bolster his squad if the winger departs for Italy in January.
"I don't know what you're talking about - you'll have to ask Ash (Ashley)," Solskjaer said after United suffered a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City on Tuesday evening in the Carabao Cup first-leg at Old Trafford.
"We've got a few months left of this season. We can't weaken ourselves; we need to strengthen ourselves, if any movement if going to happen."
Young would be the third player from United to join Inter if he were to switch allegiance following Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez's departure at the start of the season.
Meanwhile, United are back in action this weekend at home to Norwich City.
Kick-off is at 17:00 (SA time) on Saturday.
