ASHLEY YOUNG will take a pay cut to seal a new deal at Manchester United.
The full-back, 33, is out of contract in the summer and has been in talks over fresh 12-month terms.

Young, at United for seven years, currently earns around £130,000 a week but has now been offered a lower basic of just under six figures.
Yet he could still get close to his current salary with various bonuses, dependent on success and appearances, and there is unlikely to be a problem with his signing.
Young joined United from Aston Villa in a £17million deal and was originally a winger, but has been converted with some success to full-back in recent seasons.
Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho has also been in talks with Ander Herrera’s camp, and the Portuguese wants him to stay beyond the summer when his contract also expires.
