Young has told manager Louis van Gaal that he is prepared to play as a striker in the absence of Wayne Rooney, who is out with a hamstring injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Marouane Fellaini was deputized as striker last weekend against Liverpool, but it was new signing Anthony Martial who scored his debut goal with the club after coming on as a substitute. Young is available Tuesday against PSV Eindhoven, and James Wilson also travelled with the squad.

Young came off the bench to tally an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Liverpool.

Young came in at halftime to replace Memphis and made the most of his opportunity, providing an excellent service to Anthony Martial on the third goal of the game for United. While he's seen his playing time dwindle, Young is still a key contributor to the United midfield. The assist was his first of the season after five last season in 26 appearances.

Young had one shot, which was on goal, two fouls drawn and nine crosses during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

Young appeared headed for an assist on one of his crosses, but Wayne Rooney was unable to shoot on his first touch, with Spurs defender Kyle Walker coming over to try to break it up. The ball ended up in the back of the net thanks to Walker, and while Rooney ended up with the assist in some fantasy formats, Young was simply given a cross. Up next is a trip to Villa Park next weekend.

Despite having less than 12 months remaining on his current contract Young has not come to terms with Manchester United about a new contract, reports the Daily Mail.

Young played much more frequently under manager Louis van Gaal at the end of the season, but has yet to agree to an extended stay. The midfielder says he wants to stay at the club, and that the contract situation is in United's hands.

Manchester United is expected to offer Young a new three-year contract to reward his improved form in the last half of the season, reports the Daily Mail.

Earlier the midfielder offered to take a cut in pay to stay with the team, but the new terms are expected to be in the same pay range as his old agreement. He will turn 30 in July, and is currently in his fourth season with the team.

Young indicated that he would be willing to take a reduction in pay in order to stay with Manchester United as he hopes for a new three-year contract with the club, reports the Daily Mail.

Young's representatives will meet with United officials in the next few weeks. He originally joined the club from Aston Villa in 2011. Young has revived his career with the club since manager Lous van Gaal arrived, and was a key figure in last weekend's win against Manchester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Young had a goal and two assists in a dominant performance Sunday against Manchester City.

Young's output Sunday, which included six crosses, two interceptions, one tackle and one clearance, was exactly what United fans have been waiting for since he joined nearly four years ago from Aston Villa. He's clearly a favorite player of manager Louis van Gaal, and while he doesn't score often or get a high number of assists, he has decent value in fantasy formats that use peripheral stats like crosses.
