Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coy on Jesse Lingard future

According to MEN, speaking ahead of the Norwich City game, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on the future of Jesse Lingard.

The 27-year-old has not featured for the club since his disastrous performance against Club Brugge in February.

With his contract up next year, Lingard’s association with super-agent Mino Raiola has opened up speculation regarding his future at Old Trafford. (h/t MEN)

Lingard did not warm up against Tottenham Hotspur last week and was altogether absent from the United squad against Sheffield United. Solskjaer confirmed Lingard was unwell but is available for the FA Cup quarter-final at Norwich City on Saturday. (h/t MEN)

“Last week he fell ill for a couple of days but we have done all the tests and he’s fine. He will be involved against Norwich now.”

The Englishman has endured a difficult season at Old Trafford. He has managed just two goals and two assists and has started just 18 of the 35 games he has played in. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Will Lingard stay or leave?

Solskjaer hopes the player can kick on and impress in the coming matches. Although Lingard has scored some crucial goals for us, his inconsistency has proven to be a hindrance. (h/t MEN)

“He has scored vital goals for us, and has been a vital player for us. Let’s see what the future will hold.”

Lingard ‘s stock at Old Trafford has fallen in recent months. Having enjoyed an excellent outing for England at the 2018 World Cup, he has failed to carry that form back to United.

The addition of Bruno Fernandes has further hit his chances. The Portuguese has started off with a bang and does not look like slowing down.

Lingard is a decent player at best. As the club evolves, the players have to evolve with it.

Whether the Englishman’s future lies at Old Trafford or not remains to be seen.
