Man United Midfielder Jesse Lingard Has Been 'Offered' To Four Clubs By Mino Raiola
Mino Raiola has reportedly offered Jesse Lingard to four clubs as the Manchester United player prepares to seal a move away from Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old attacking midfielder has struggled to maintain consistency this season and ended 2019 without scoring or assisting in the Premier League.
And now Raiola, who teamed up with Lingard this month, has been busy working his magic in Italy for his client.
Duncan Castles said on The Transfer Window podcast that the super-agent is in talks with Roma, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli over the player.
Lingard, who has been heavily linked with AC Milan, has made 27 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils this season.
But the England international has only scored once and assisted once in the current campaign.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that he has a strong relationship with Lingard, despite his new partnership with Raiola.
"Jesse is working for Man United," he said.
"Whoever he speaks to and gets his advice from is none of my business and Jesse knows what we expect from him.
"I have a great open relationship with Jesse -- we talk freely so I don't speak to the agents of many players."
Raiola, who also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, hit out at United last month over their handling of Lingard's United teammate Paul Pogba.
The 52-year-old Italian-born Dutch agent, who is also Pogba's agent, said that the "club [are] out of touch with reality."
And Raiola argued that he "wouldn't take anyone there" and claimed they would "even ruin [Diego] Maradona, Pele and [Paolo] Maldini."
Lingard, who was heavily criticised in United's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on New Year's Day, has also been linked with a move to Leicester City in a player-plus-cash deal for James Maddison.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the 23-year-old attacking midfielder and would offer £45m and Lingard to land him in the January transfer window.
