Lingard could be quids in after latest Newcastle proposal with Man United’s response needed

Posted by

The transfer situation for Jesse Lingard is likely to go right to the wire on deadline day.

It’s believed that the midfielder has told Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick, that he wants to leave in this window, but the deal will clearly need to be right for the Red Devils.

Both West Ham United and Newcastle United have apparently been showing serious interest, though the Magpies have really put the cat amongst the pigeons now.

According to a tweet from Craig Hope of the Daily Mail, Newcastle are willing to pay a £3m loan fee to the Old Trafford outfit, and, perhaps just as importantly, will pay Lingard a £4m bonus if he helps to keep them up.

Eddie Howe and his board are clearly doing all that they can to bring in as many elite-level players as possible in order to give themselves the best possible chance of staying up this season.

A response from Man United is required and those in the corridors of power at St. James’ Park will surely be waiting to hear back with interest.
