West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur will probably try again for Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard in the next transfer window too.
#NUFC offer for Lingard revealed by @samuelluckhurst is intriguing. He’d rather go back to #WHUFC but #MUFC cannot contemplate strengthening a top 4 rival. Surely better to go out and play rather than sit rotting? West Ham and Spurs interest will still be there in the summer.
No Time Better Than Now For Lingard…
Lingard who is approaching 30, is clearly not going to be a big cog in the Manchester United wheel. And, as he gets older, injuries and opportunities could further inhibit his playing time. Despite this, Lingard is a player who TalkSport host Adrian Durham describes as “phenomenal”. Is the hype justified?
The England attacker certainly endeared himself to Hammers fans when he scored nine goals and provided five assists in only 16 games last season for David Moyes’ side, a result which left West Ham fans hoping that would lead to a permanent move to London Stadium.
