Gary Neville thinks Jesse Lingard will leave Manchester United this summer after his fine form on loan with West Ham United.
The 28-year-old has been truly magnificent for the Hammers since moving to the London Stadium on loan from Man United in January.
The 26-capped England international has racked up nine goals and three assists in just 13 games for West Ham so far.
David Moyes deserves huge credit for having the foresight to bring Lingard to East London in the first place.
The tough task now will be signing him up on a permanent deal.
Gary Neville backs Jesse Lingard for Manchester United exit
The 28-year-old won’t have much of a future at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That’s according to Sky Sports pundit Neville who suggested that Solskjaer will tell Jesse to go and find another club this summer:
“There’s a feeling that Jesse Lingard, having done really well at West Ham, could come back, but I think Ole will say ‘no’ and tell him to go and explore elsewhere.”
Let’s hope that Neville is right.
If Manchester United do decide to move Lingard on, then West Ham will surely be favourites to sign him.
The 28-year-old seems to be loving life at the London Stadium. If the Hammers qualify for Europe, surely then we will be able to bring him to the club on a permanent deal.
Signing Lingard permanently this summer should be a priority for David Moyes.
All we can do is sit back and hope that Jesse pushes to join us at the end of the season.
