Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard posted a picture in West Ham colours on his Instagram story recently.
A number of Red Devils fans have hit out at the 29-year-old as a result, with the player wanted back at the London Stadium in a possible January switch.
Should United sell Lingard this month?
Yes, cash in now!
No, keep him!
Lingard is yet to feature under Ralf Rangnick in the Premier League and has made just two starts all season. The Englishman is out of contract at the end of the campaign, meaning that he could technically pen pre-contract terms now with a club outside of England ahead of a free transfer in the summer.
However, the Hammers are still interested in Lingard, who relayed a Premier League post on his Instagram story alongside Declan Rice, Pablo Fornals and Tomas Soucek from when he was on loan with the east London club last season.
United fans react
The United Stand shared the screenshot of Lingard’s social media post on Twitter. Here is what these United supporters had to say in reply, with many not pleased and one describing it as ‘disrespectful’ to his current club.
Indeed, it is not the first time that the 29-year-old has enraged some of the Old Trafford fan base over his social media antics, and given his inactivity this season, some supporters feel that it is time for him to be moved on.
“Genuinely can’t believe we didn’t sell Lingard in the summer. Sell him in January. Try and get something for him.”
“He’s becoming disrespectful”
“get this man out of the club”
“He should be banned from kicking ball at my club for life”
“Let him go, we don’t need him, we don’t play him, get him off the books”
“I really hope he leave this club”
