Man United are prepared to sell ace this summer to make room for Jesse Lingard after his loan at West Ham

Posted by

There was a feeling that Jesse Lingard’s loan move to West Ham was a chance to put him in the shop window, but he has started in fine form and he appears to have his confidence back.

His biggest problem at Old Trafford was that his confidence had clearly deserted him as time went on, while he was only getting cameo appearances here and there so it was tough to play his way back into form.

He’s scored three goals in four games so far and it looks like Man United have taken notice, with a report from ESPN indicating that there will be a place for him at Old Trafford next season.

It’s suggested that Juan Mata will finally be moved on this summer after he’s been little more than a fringe player for a few years, and his spot in the squad will go to Lingard.

You have to wonder if it will be that simple as Lingard has to be enjoying playing regular football again and feeling like an important part of the side, so he might not want to return to life on the bench at Old Trafford again.

It also must be noted that he’s had a bright start but it’s important to judge him after a decent run of games at West Ham, but this could be an interesting decision for Man United and Lingard to make in the summer.

  1. Totally disagree with this article, Lingard isn’t playing well due to confidence, he is playing well because teams attack West Ham and leave space for him to play. Jesse played well for United against teams that attack them but struggled against teams that played a deep defensive game against them. Very few teams use that style of play against West Ham giving him space to show his talents. I think Jesse will be allowed leave this summer, as will Mata and maybe Matic and Pogba.

  2. I really like Juan Mata, but it appears his time at Manchester United has come. I read an article today, stating that his one year contract extension will not be taken up by the club thus ending the United career of a really good player. His vision, skills with the ball in and around the box, as well as his nature, have made him one of the most highly regarded players in the league. I always rated Jesse Lingard below Mata for skill level, if not likeability. Both their United careers though, effectively ended when Fernandes and Van Der Beek arrived. I can’t see Lingard getting too much game time even when Juan Mata leaves.

  3. Jessie Lingard has been a good player at Manchester United. Juan Mata has always been better.
    Even Mata doesn’t get game time since the purchases of Fernandes and Van Der Beek.
    So why would Mata leaving make things better for Lingard?

  4. JLingz can be a star at West Ham or a bench warmer for United. Why would he want to return to zero football.

    1. Its better he remain in West harm United, coz he went on loan after he started to shine there u want to bring him back no way

  5. I think they are all good players but the question is if they are not getting time to play, if they sell him will lingard get a time to play?
