On Monday, United triggered a one-year extension clause in Young's contract, which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2019.

Known around the club for his hard-work, experience and versatility, he's been relied on heavily by Mourinho this season, getting into the team ahead of the likes of Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind at full-back and becoming one of the best wing-backs in the league.

The inevitable new arrivals will cause several United stars to be fearing for their place in the squad, with Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind all set to find new clubs in the summer.

All is not well for Luke Shaw at Old Trafford, as he was reportedly involved in a bust-up with Jose Mourinho, who has already identified a replacement.

Shaw was substituted off at halftime of Man United's 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup and was publicly criticized by Mourinho after the game, sparking controversy and plenty of conversation in the media over the past 48 hours.

Shaw, who moved to Old Trafford from Southampton in 2014, now faces a battle to make Southgate's Russian Federation squad.

"I want to see Luke do well".

Perhaps the most naturally-gifted of Mourinho's forwards but one also prone to passive play, Anthony Martial has never looked quite the same since being replaced as United's central striker and shifted out to the left.

Alan Shearer has been discussing Manchester United as the club and Jose Mourinho come in for criticism from all quarters. They are the only Premier League men's side not to have a senior women's team.

"What I would say about Shaw is that the talent and ability are there, but his job as a footballer is to be prepared to perform every day and do every single thing in his life well to be a United player", Neville added. "I feel like I am playing with confidence, I have done all season", said the 32-year-old.

Young's performances as of late, has earned him a call up from Gareth Southgate to the England squad, for their upcoming pair of friendlies against the likes of, The Netherlands and Italy.

He missed out on the 2014 World Cup and is keen to be involved when Southgate announces his team for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

"There's a lot of players out there with less ability but maximising their potential and I just hope he can get there". I've just got to be impressive to the England manager and hopefully be on that plane.
