There is ‘total resignation’ at Manchester United over Jesse Lingard’s move to West Ham United.
That’s according to West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh, who also claim to have a senior source at Old Trafford.
Lingard has been a sensation since signing on loan for West Ham from Man United in January.
His signing raised eyebrows but has proved a stroke of genius from David Moyes.
Wild speculation over the future of sensational Lingard
The midfield ace has hit eight goals and provided four assists – and a number of crucial pre-assists (the key pass or movement before the direct assist) – in just nine games.
The 28-year-old’s latest heroics came in the 3-2 win over Leicester last time out as he scored another fine brace.
Lingard’s form has sparked fervent speculation over his future.
Each man of the match display appears to generate more interest in the midfielder. But West Ham are reportedly desperate to get him signed permanently.
‘Total resignation’ inside Man United over Lingard future
Some reports claim Lingard could cost the Hammers as much as £20-30 million. Others claim Man United want him back (The Sun).
And some state the likes of PSG, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Leicester, Roma and a host of others are now interested.
Claret and Hugh have direct links to West Ham’s owners David Sullivan and David Gold.
But the site also claims its correspondent Terry Robins has excellent contacts inside Man United too.
And this week they have claimed the Red Devils are planning to offer Lingard a new deal but there is ‘total resignation’ that the star will reject it as he has his heart set on West Ham.

“Instead of the six clubs who came for him West Ham was the only one which attracted him and to be honest that has been patently obvious in the way that he has performed since arriving,” Claret and Hugh report.
“And after Sunday’s match the fella was talking like a permanent Hammer given all the “we as a team” statements he was making after the defeat of Leicester City.
“United will be offering Jesse a new deal very soon but there’s a total resignation at Old Trafford that he will not be accepting.
“He clearly has his heart set on West Ham United given the choice that he made from the six and if I can get the odds I’ll be having a decent bet on that.”
