Ashley Young is now in his final 12 months with Manchester United but has the option to stay for one more year if he wishes to is now linked with a move to Stoke.
The 32-year-old Young was linked in moving to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng, however, Mourinho did not allow the transfer as he still needs the England International for their Europa League campaign.
Now, Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is interested in bringing Young as they also need a replacement for Marko Amautovic who will move to West Ham.
Mourinho is still considering on not giving Young away as he still values the player. Since United is pursuing Ivan Perisic, it is likely that they may just give Young away.
Ashley Young is with Manchester United in the U.S for their pre-season tour and will compete against Manchester City in Maryland on Friday.
