Man Utd set to offer new deal to 28-year-old midfielder

By | March 29, 2021

Jesse Lingard may reportedly not be leaving Manchester United after all in the summer with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer very impressed with the star and willing to bring him back into the senior team fold.

The 28-year-old found playing time hard to come by at United and was forced to leave the club on loan in January, signing for West Ham until the end of the season.

In spite of his lack of minutes in recent seasons, Jesse hit the ground running with five goals and two assists in his first seven top-flight appearances for the Irons.

The player’s form has been so impressive he even earned a recall to his country’s national team and was named Man of the Match for his performance versus San Marino on Thursday.

The midfielder was widely expected to make a permanent transfer to east London for a fee of around £15 million, but now The Sun claim that United have had a rethink.

Ole has been so blown away by Jesse’s return to form he is prepared to bring him back in from the cold and feels he could be a valuable part of the roster.

In spite of freezing Lingard out, the Norwegian tactician has always been a big fan of the player and is delighted to see him full of confidence once again.

The Red Devils are even considering offering Lingard a contract extension, with his current £100,000-a-week contract due to expire in 2022 when he’d be able to leave the club on a free transfer.
