Manchester United: Fans fume as Jesse Lingard set to see out his contract

Manchester United: Fans fume as Jesse Lingard set to see out his contract -Manchester United News

A number of Manchester United supporters have reacted negatively to the news that Jesse Lingard will see out his contract at Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old has had to settle for a bit-part role at United this season, failing to start a single Premier League game and playing just 88 minutes in the top flight.

Lingard spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham, where he excelled, and he has been linked with a move away once again in the January transfer window.

According to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein on Twitter, the England international will not be moving on next month and will instead remain at United until the end of the season.

At that point, the midfielder’s contract will expire, and he isn’t expected to sign a pre-contract deal with another club before then.

These United fans took to Twitter to react to the news, with many slamming Lingard over his apparent lack of ambition and others believing that then-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not ruthless enough by keeping a player who has been on the periphery of the squad.

I blame Ole for this. Lingard should’ve been sold last summer. Now he leaves for nothing

This guy’s motivational level is quite a spectacle, though under Rangnick it’s his best chance of doing this

This guy doesn’t value his career at this point. Just wants to chill with Ronaldo…He can start every week for most teams in the Premier League and walk into the England squad
