Tony Cottee has advised Ashley Young to go to China for one final payday
Ashley Young has struggled this season at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho and has made just two Premier League starts.
The 31-year-old has been linked with moves to West Brom and Watford in recent weeks, as well a big-money switch to China.
And according to ex-West Ham striker Tony Cottee, Young should jump at the opportunity to make some serious money in the Far East.
"Ashley Young is 31 years of age. He's at possibly the best club in the country, Manchester United," Cottee told Sky Sports.
"Where does he go from Manchester United if he was to stay in England?
"He may go to a team in the Premier League in a relegation fight.
"When you're in your thirties, it gets harder. It gets harder to perform physically like you were in your twenties.
"At 31, if a big offer comes in, you have to consider it.
"You have to look at it for your family as well.
"When you retire from football, if you lucky at the age of 35 or 36, you've hopefully 50 years of your life left.
"That's a lot of money you need to get through those 50 years.
"I don't blame anyone for going to China, especially at the age of 31."
