Real Madrid plan £30m offer for Ashley Young

Real Madrid are set to make a January bid for Aston Villa winger Ashley Young according to reports on the Spanish back pages. The sports daily Marca ran a story claiming that Real are set to offer £30m for the 23-year-old England international.

Marca are pretty gushing about Young describing the former Watford player as the new Beckham. Ramos is said to have taken note of the winger's form when he still Spurs boss.

Young is reported to top Juande Ramos' January shopping list with the former Tottenham boss also interested in signing Portsmouth midfielder Lassana Diarra. But with Villa in the top four and pushing for a Champions League place it would be suicidal for the Birmingham club to cash in at this stage of the season.
