Manchester United's Jesse Lingard Is Wanted By Four Premier League Clubs

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard Is Wanted By Four Premier League Clubs

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard is wanted by four different Premier League clubs - but the Red Devils could trigger a one year extension in his contract.

90Min have reported that the England international has interest from Leicester City, Everton, West Ham United and Newcastle United despite his poor season.

The 27-year-old hasn't scored or assisted in the Premier League this campaign and his career has stagnated in the last two years.

January signing Bruno Fernandes has overtaken him in the starting XI while youngsters Dan James and Mason Greenwood have also put themselves ahead in the pecking order.

His current contract expires in 2021 but United are considering triggering the year extension they have in most player's deals.

His chances of game time will decrease even further should United land summer transfer targets Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

Lingard's last Premier League action came on February 1 against Wolves and he was omitted from three of United's final four squads before the league's suspension.

However, the academy graduate won't be 'forced out' of the club if he accepts his role being reduced to that of a squad player.

He employed Mino Raiola as an agent back in January and it's a move that reportedly angered the club, given his behaviour when it comes to representing Paul Pogba.

Lingard and fellow academy graduate Andreas Pereira were lambasted by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier this year when he stated their standards 'had to improve'.

The midfielder also revealed the personal issues he battled in 2019 after his mum begun suffering from illness.

"I wasn't performing and he was on me all the time. He wanted more from me," he told Ian Ladyman.

"So I felt it was best to get everything off my chest and tell him why my head wasn't right. So I knocked on his door.

"...When I came on the manager said to me, 'Just go on and play with a smile and enjoy it.' To hear that gives you confidence. He knows what kind of character I am. I need to be smiling.

"He has just told me that everything will be OK. Maybe I just needed someone to say that.

"He said he just wanted the old Jesse back and maybe I can give him that now."

Do you think Jesse Lingard will leave Manchester United this summer and if so, where will he go?
