Inter boss Antonio Conte has offered the England star an 18-month deal to join his Serie A title hopefuls this month.

But now Italian rivals Lazio and Roy Hodgson’s Palace - who drew 1-1 with Arsenal this weekend - have also come forward wanting to sign the winger-turned-defender.

Lazio registered their interest this week, while Palace want Young to help strengthen their squad this season.

Hodgson has been a long-term admirer of Young since working with him while England boss.

And he believes he can offer regular first team football and the chance to stay in the Premier League to the United star.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he wants his club captain to stay at least until the end of the season, but also for another 12 months.

But Young now has plenty of options available to him to extend his career at the top level, and regular starts is one of the key things he is looking for.

Young was left out of the United squad that demolished Norwich 4-0.

Marcus Rashford celebrated becoming the third youngest player to reach 200 Man Utd games with a double against the Canaries.

Anthony Martial and 18-year-old Mason Greenwood completed the scoring, with Solskjaer reserving special praise for his young guns.

SunSport told you Harry Maguire is to be handed the permanent United captaincy with Young on his way out.
