Manchester United Bosses Clash Over Jesse Lingard Decision

Manchester United's hierarchy are reportedly divided over the future of Jesse Lingard after his impressive loan spell at West Ham United last season.

Lingard's future is likely to prove one of the key tales of this summer's transfer window after he caught the eye during his scintillating loan stint with the Hammers.

The 28-year-old scored nine goals and assisted five others to help West Ham qualify for the Europa League - and that form hasn't gone unnoticed, with United decision makes split on whether to cash in or keep the midfield maestro at Old Trafford.

Lingard became a man out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season, with it looking increasingly likely he would be moved on this summer.

But after he shone brightly for the Hammers on loan, it has led many to believe that he could still have a future in Solskjaer's star-studded squad.

West Ham, meanwhile, are said to be keen on bringing Lingard back to the London Stadium, but The Athletic suggest they are unwilling to match his parent club's valuation.

Despite having less than 12 months on his current contract, United are said to be holding out for £30m - a fee that the Hammers can reportedly not afford.

That could lead to further debate over Lingard's future and the report adds that there is some disagreement behind the scenes at Manchester United.

It is believed that some are open to offering the midfielder a new contract that would protect his transfer value, while others think the time is right to sell.

The Red Devils are set to announce the £72.9m transfer of Jadon Sancho later this week after the England star completed his medical.

And after spending such a staggering amount of money on Sancho, United will know that Lingard remains their most saleable asset. But where will he be playing his trade next season - Manchester or London?
