Young got his hands on a first Premier League winners' medal last term, two years after his £17million move from Aston Villa.
Now new manager David Moyes is starting down the same path, which takes him back to Merseyside on Sunday for a meeting with old rivals Liverpool.
"When you come to a place like Manchester United, you want success," said Young.
"You look at the trophy cabinet and the history. You want a piece of that. Everybody is a winner here. You see that in training. No-one wants to lose.
"If you have that in training you take it onto the pitch. We want to retain the title that we won last season."
Press Association Sport understands Leighton Baines has told Everton of his wish to join United, although with Everton presently unmoved about the prospect of selling the 28-year-old, it remains to be seen whether he gets his wish.
Baines' former manager Moyes is on a steep learning curve, as evidenced by the demand for victory on a ground where he did not win once in 12 attempts during his time at Everton.
The Scot's presence is sure to attract plenty of attention from the home fans, already buoyed by successive victories over Stoke and Aston Villa.
Not that Young sees how the atmosphere could be more intense than normal.
