Jesse Lingard's brother has labelled Manchester United as "classless" in a scathing social media post after the academy product failed to make an appearance in the club's final home game of the season against Brentford.
It looks increasingly likely that the 29-year-old midfielder will leave in the coming weeks after a frustrating few months at Old Trafford.
After an impressive loan spell at West Ham last year, Lingard has made just 22 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League strugglers this season, but most of them have come from the bench.
Lingard, who is out of contract at the end of the season, could feature for United in their final two Premier League away games against Brighton and Crystal Palace.
But interim manager Ralf Rangnick decided against giving his first-team minutes on Monday night in their last game of the season at Old Trafford – a decision that didn't go down well with his brother, Louie Scott.
After 20 years at the club, Scott believes his sibling should have been given a proper send off in front of over 70,000 fans.
"20 years of blood sweat and tears, 4 domestic trophies, 3 cup final goal, not even a farewell," Scott wrote on his private Instagram story. "No wonder it's Conference League next year.
"Attacking players for celebrations when the clubs being sold to the super league ok. Class of 92, Busby Babes, you're ran by people who don't even know the offside trap. Classless and the fans need to realise. Goodnight, godbless!
"Been there since nine years of age and didn't even get a send off!!! Well done bro your family are proud."
That being said, the Italian clubs face stiff competition from a number of Premier League outfits, with Newcastle thought to be keen on snapping up the 29-year-old, while former club West Ham may reignite their interest.

Last month, Manchester United's all-time top goalscorer Wayne Rooney named four players who they should build the team around, including Lingard.
"I think [Jadon] Sancho will be better next year, Marcus [Rashford] will be better next year," the club's all time top goalscorer said on Monday Night Football.
"They've got good young players. I think Jesse Lingard should be playing for them because he brings energy, brings quality. Scott McTominay's done well,
"So they do have some good young players, you just have to get some confidence and get them believing that they're good players and perform at the best level.
"And then obviously, whoever the new manager is, I'm sure he'll bring his own players in and build that through."
Thoughts on Lingard not getting minutes against Brentford on Monday night?
