Manchester United news: Jesse Lingard joined the Red Devils’ youth academy in 2000. He worked through the club’s youth levels to make his professional debut in 2011.
He has played 149 league games for the Red Devils so far, scoring 20 goals. Lingard has won one FA Cup, one EFL Cup, one FA Community Shield and one UEFA Europa League with the club.
However, he struggled in recent seasons, starting just two league games this campaign. He spent last season on loan at West Ham United and was linked with a permanent move to the Hammers during last summer’s transfer window.
The 29-year old is currently in the final year of his contract at the Manchester-based club. He is likely to leave Old Trafford as a free agent at the end of the season.
Manchester United news: Jesse Lingard’s move to Newcastle United is in doubt due to his wage demands
According to ESPN, Newcastle United are unlikely to sign Jesse Lingard in the summer due to his wage demands.
The England international is reportedly demanding £150,000 per week, along with huge sign-on incentives. The Newcastle owners are not ready to meet his demands to sign him on a Bosman deal in the summer.
The North-East club, however, were desperate to sign the Manchester United youth graduate on loan during the January window. But the Magpies refused to pay the £16 million loan fee as demanded by United.
Eddie Howe will look to bolster his attacking options in the summer, with Jesse Lingard among his top options, along with Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.
However, Lingard also has plenty of other options, with West Ham United, AC Milan, and PSG all showing interest in signing him in recent weeks.
10 Players expected to leave Old Trafford in the summer
The Red Devils have appointed Erik ten Hag as their new manager to take charge from next season. The Dutchman will likely clear a lot of the deadwood in the summer to make space for new arrivals.
It is reported that up to 10 players are expected to leave the club during the upcoming transfer window. Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Lee Grant are currently in the final year of their respective contracts at the club. They are expected to move for a greener pasture in the summer.
Apart from that, there are also doubts about the futures of Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Donny van der Beek at the club.
