Lingard turns down Man United new deal


Jesse Lingard has reportedly rejected a two-year contract extension from Manchester United.

The England winger is understood to be concerned about how often he is likely to play in the current campaign, with the arrival of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lingard’s current contract at the ‘Red Devils’ will come to an end at the end of the 2021/22 season.

The 28-year-old footballer spent the rest of the last term on loan at West Ham United, where he scored nine goals in 16 appearances.

Lingard is said to have received offers from five different teams during the summer transfer window period, especially with West Ham gunning for him to return at the club after an impressive loan spell.

He has only just played four minutes of Premier League action this season against Southampton last month, as he came in as a substitute.

The gifted player scored a brace for England in Sunday’s World Cup Qualifier clash against Andorra.

He has won the Uefa Europa League, FA Cup, FA Community Shield and EFL Cup ever since joining United’s first team from the development side in 2008.
