West Ham United considering move for Man Utd out-of-favour duo

By | July 16, 2020

West Ham United are reportedly considering an approach for Man United pair Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones.

The two England internationals have struggled to make an impression under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign and could allegedly be on their way to depart from the club this summer.

According to The Independent, David Moyes is keen to reunite with both Jessie Lingard and Phil Jones at West Ham, having worked with the duo during his brief stint as the Red Devils head coach.

However, an approach for the Red Devils dou could supposedly be hindered by a number of roadblocks, as Phil Jones penned a four-year contract at Old Trafford last summer while Jessie Lingard is believed to be keen to fight for his place in Solskjaer’s starting XI.

Furthermore, the Hammers are embroiled in a relegation battle as they lie four points above the bottom three, and the report suggests that the signing of Lingard and Jones would be unlikely to come to fruition if the West London club drop down to the Championship.

While Jones still has three years left to run on his current contract at Old Trafford, Lingard will see his current deal expire next summer.
