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.

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.

Young hopes that his recent run of good form is enough to earn a recall to the England squad, reports the Daily Mail.

England manager Roy Hodgson will pick the squad to face Lithuania and Italy this week. After a strong performance on Sunday against Tottenham, he may have found his way onto the manager's radar.

Young scored a late winning goal Wednesday to secure a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

Young took advantage of poor defending by Newcastle when a failed clearance gave him the perfect opportunity to fire a shot. The ball hit the back of the net in the 89th minute, and secured the victory for Manchester United.

Young had a game-high 14 crosses, as well as four key passes and three shots (one on goal) during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

Young was easily the man of the match until Wayne Rooney banged home his second goal. Young continues to be a decent fantasy contributor in formats that reward crosses, and his spot in the starting XI appears to be fairly solid.
