Ashley Young’s proposed move to the San Siro could be in doubt, with Inter Milan and Roma close to agreeing a swap deal involving Matteo Politano and Leonardo Spinazzola, according to Sky in Italy.

Roma have been forced to act on the transfer market after midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo ruptured his Anterior Crucial Ligament in the 2-1 defeat to Juventus on Sunday night and have set their eyes on Inter winger Politano to replace the 20-year-old.

Inter have been looking for a left full-back and were in talks to sign Manchester United’s Young, who turned down a new one-year contract at the club with a view to signing for the Serie A club.

The 34-year-old’s contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of this season, but it remains unclear whether United will permit him to leave this month.

However, Inter have now turned their attention to Roma’s Spinazzola and if a deal is agreed, Young would be no longer required.
