Manchester United seeking £20m for Jesse Lingard

According to Eurosport, Manchester United have named their asking price for West Ham United loanee Jesse Lingard.

The 28-year-old has been excellent for the Hammers since joining them on loan last January. He has made five appearances for them so far, scoring three goals and assisting two more. (h/t Transfermarkt)

His performances have seen both West Ham and Leicester City keep tabs on the players’ progress. As things stand Unrtied are ready to sanction a sale provided their £20m asking price is met.

West Ham have paid a loan fee of £1.5m and were keen on including a £15m option to make the deal permanent. United were unwilling to include the clause and could now reap the benefits of that decision. (h/t Express)

To add the cherry on top, the Red Devils could also make use of Lingard as leverage in their efforts to land Declan Rice. At 28, the Englishman is in his prime and has already shown he can add a new dimension to David Moyes’ attack. (h/t Express)

Lingard came through the ranks at United before making his first-team debut under Louis van Gaal in 2014. The player’s finest moment in a United jersey came in the 2016 FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. His extra-time strike proved to be the winner in what turned out to be the final game of Van Gaal’s reign.

Lingard has so far made 210 appearances for United, scoring 33 goals and assisting 20 more. It will not be a surprise if this is his final United tally. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Lingard has not had much joy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whether it is because the Norwegian doesn’t rate him or does not know how to get the best out of him is debatable.

It would appear that he has already played his last game for United. Given that he still has a lot of football left in him, a parting of the ways is the best way forward.
