Jesse Lingard

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is in advanced talks with two clubs.

According to the BBC, the 29-year-old is wanted by Newcastle United, AC Milan, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain and there is a belief that talks with two of these clubs are in an advanced stage.

Lingard has cut a frustrated figure at Old Trafford owing to lack of game time and with his contract expiring in the summer, he will be moving as a free agent as he hopes that his next station can give him the required game time to boost his World Cup chances with England.

Lingard was left on the bench for the 3-0 victory over Brentford on Monday something that saw his brother and agent take to social media to rant about the player’s treatment and it is clear that he won’t be at the club despite reports indicating that Erik ten Hag would want to have him in his team.

The Dutchman is believed to be keen to speak with Lingard about his future, but the player has no interest in extending his stay at Old Trafford.

Lingard’s anger with United stems from the club’s refusal to grant him a loan move to Newcastle in January after the Red Devils demanded a £2.5 million loan fee and a £12.5m bonus if Eddie Howe’s side avoided relegation.

A move to St James’ Park is Lingard’s most likely destination if he says in the Premier League, with the northeast club able to meet his lofty wage demands. Lingard has scored 35 goals in 232 appearances for United but has never really produced his best form on a consistent basis.
