Manchester United could be forced into making a Jesse Lingard U-turn according to The Mirror in what is really positive news for West Ham.
The 28-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with the Hammers.
And Lingard was a huge hit at the London Stadium. He racked up nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League games for West Ham.
David Moyes is clearly desperate to make Lingard’s move to East London a permanent one this summer. The Scot is a huge fan of Jesse and labelled him as an ‘exceptional’ player last season.
So it was disappointing to hear that Manchester United were ready to offer the attacking midfielder a shiny new £130k-a-week deal earlier this week (The Daily Star).
It appears as though all hope is not lost, however…
Manchester United U-turn on Jesse Lingard?
Ole Gunar Solskjaer may well be forced to move Jesse on this summer in order to facilitate the £72.9 million signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund according to The Mirror.
And if the 28-year-old does leave Old Trafford, a move to West Ham surely beckons for him.
The London Stadium would be absolutely buzzing next season if Jesse Lingard joins West Ham on a permanent deal.
The Sun recently claimed that the Hammers will have to pay around £20 million if they want to sign the 28-capped England international.
That’s pretty good value considering the impact he had at West Ham last season.
