Lingard Refused New Contract from Manchester United

Manchester United and England star Jesse Lingard are resigned to leaving Manchester United this summer after feeling let down by the treatment he has received during the past 12 months in the club. Lingard’s contract will expire in June and Newcastle United, AC Milan, Juventus, and Paris St-Germain have already shown interest in the 29-year-old midfielder.

It has been suggested that United’s new head coach Erik Ten Hag is keen to speak with the England international about his future. But it is understood that Jesse has no interest in talking to the Dutchman. There was significant interest in the player during the past two transfer windows.

However, Manchester United refused to let him join a top-four rival and both former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his temporary replacement Ralf Rangnick told the forward he would get an opportunity to press his first-team claims. But Lingard has started only two Premier League games this season and was left upset on Monday when Rangnick did not introduce him from the bench during the 3-0 win against Brentford, which would have been a farewell appearance at Old Trafford for a player who joined United when he was just seven.

Jesse Lingard’s brother posted a furious message on social media complaining that after “20 years of blood, sweat and tears, four domestic trophies and three cup final goals” there was “not even a farewell” for the midfielder. Lingard feels he needs to resurrect his 32-cap England career, having featured in World Cup qualifiers in September and October 2021.

Negotiations with two of the clubs interested in Lingard are said to be at an advanced stage. Newcastle United tried to sign him in January but the player was not sure about committing himself to a club at that time as they were battling relegation.
