After impressing on loan at West Ham last season, Jesse Lingard has entered the final year of his contract at Manchester United. The 28-year-old looked down and out at the club at this time last year but has been rejuvenated under David Moyes.
West Ham are said to be interested in bringing the midfielder back to London on a permanent basis but will need to pay handsomely, with Manchester United not prepared to give any discounts, according to reports.
That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, via The United Stand, who claims that clubs from abroad are interested in signing Lingard but were met with a stern response from his club.
Romano claims that Lingard will either play for West Ham or Manchester United, which means that seemingly nothing is advanced with any club overseas.
Furthermore, he claims that West Ham are still interested and that Lingard is awaiting a proposal from the club. Romano also says that Manchester United are relaxed as they believe that should Lingard decide to stick around, he will commit to a new contract at Old Trafford.
