How and why do I use “y” in this sentence
“Je vais y aller avec toi.” Instead of (my version) “J’y vais aller avec toi.”
This question relates to:French lesson "Y = There (adverbial pronoun)"

The "y" comes before the infinitive, similar to other pronouns. In the absence of the infinitive, it comes before the conjugated verb.
Je vais les rencontrer.Je dois lui en parler.
In a frequently asked question, I found out that when using the ‘futur proche’ the pronoun ‘y’ is placed between the verb and the infinitive. For example ‘Je vais y aller’.
