Jesse Lingard Reveals Two Conditions For Manchester United Return

Jesse Lingard has been impressing while on loan at West Ham, reuniting with former Manchester United boss David Moyes.

The 28-year-old has grabbed five goals and two assists in just seven Premier League appearances for the east Londoners, helping them to fifth place in the Premier League.

Indeed, with the Hammers just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, were they to manage European qualification it is unclear whether Lingard would want to return to warming the bench at Old Trafford.

In addition, as well as Moyes and co., Lingard is sure to have plenty of interest in his signature from other clubs - who may well be able to turn his attention away from the Red Devils.

According to ESPN, the forward has two conditions were he to return to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

First of all, he is keen to be playing regularly. The effect of being a regular starter at the Olympic Stadium has been revlationary on Lingard, and it would be silly for him to go back to being a rotation option now.

Second, Lingard would need a new contract at Old Trafford. Purely for practical reasons: the England international only has one more season left on his deal at United.

So, Lingard is asking a lot of the club, but would he be worth it? While he has been in excellent form for West Ham recently, that may be just that, form - which can always fluctuate.

In addition, the success of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United means that Lingard's favoured no. 10 role is unavailable, and he would be back to running up and down the wings.
