Is it because CR7 has come?
ManUnited star Jesse Lingard (28 years / contract until 2022) could leave the England club because he is rarely used after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo (36).
It is now reported by the British “Daily Mail” and names two top clubs, FC Barcelona and AC Milan, which are said to be interested in the striker.
United want to keep Lingard and even offered him a new contract last month. But the Englishman, apparently, refused for the time being to get an idea of the situation in Manchester after the signing of Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho (21 years old).
And now he shouldn’t like it!
Under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (48), Lingard has not played in any of the seven league games this season.
Most likely, the English international, who had been on loan at West Ham for six months last season, will have completed his contract until the summer of 2022 and then left United for free.
It is said that both FC Barcelona and AC Milan are interested in a free transfer.
A scenario that the “red devils” want to avoid.
Solskjaer wants to keep Lingard, possibly even with an improved contractual offer. If the home-grown United States were to reject this again, it should be sold in January. Recently, the “Sun” put into play a transfer commission of about 17.5 million euros.
