Manchester United ready to listen offers for 27-year-old forward

By | March 21, 2020

Manchester United reportedly intend to sell their out-of-favour midfielder Jesse Lingard during the summer transfer window.

While the academy graduate has enjoyed a terrible time at Old Trafford, the 27-year-old is no longer regarded as a regular first-team player.

The England international midfielder has failed to found back of the net or provide an assist to his teammates in nine starts and 11 substitute appearences in the Premier League this campaign.

According to Goal.com, Norwegian manager is happy to cash in on the midfielder at the end of the season.

The report suggests that Lingard views himself as the teams best option in the No.10 role, an opinion which is not shared by his head-coach.

Lingard has just under 16 months left on his current deal with the English heavyweights.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are reportedly keeping close tabs on Willian’s contract situation at Stamford Bridge.

The Brazil international forward will see his current contract at Stamford Bridge expire this summer and has allegedly turned down the Chelsea’s latest offer as he wants a three-year extension.

Ligue 1 defending champions PSG have been heavily linked with the attacker while Barcelona also thought to remain interested in signing him, however, according to le10sport, the Red Devils have emerged as suitors for the South American ahead of the summer.

The 31-year-old has found back of the net seven times and provided six assists in 37 games at club level this campaign, including a goal and an assist in Sunday’s 4-0 victory over Everton in the English top-tier.
