West Ham-linked Jesse Lingard’s father appears to be calling the shots surrounding his son’s future, according to Claret and Hugh.
The report claims that he was the main reason behind the 28-year-old staying put at Manchester United, at least for the first half of this season.
David Moyes is understood to be keen on signing him in January, but it is no closer to finding out whether or not he will be able to bring him to the London Stadium.
The quest to sign Lingard in January is going through way too many twists and turns.
We’re surprised that why Lingard is letting his father call the shots and not taking charge of his own career.
He knew that game time was going to be limited at Old Trafford, given their array of riches, still, he chose to be there.
At West Ham, he would’ve been a regular week in and week out and would have cemented his spot in the England side as well.
Moyes has retained his interest in him, which is a good sign, but Lingard shouldn’t now want to give it another go under the new manager at the club.
He’s not going to start ahead of the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Jadon Sancho, or Mason Greenwood, so it makes very little sense to stay on.
If he’s not signing an extension then Man United could look to cash in on him this January, which would be a good option for the Hammers to explore.
