West Ham United fans have been reacting to the news that Manchester United are allegedly prepared to sell Jesse Lingard for £15m in January.
Last season, Lingard made the loan move to the London Stadium from Old Trafford for the second half of the campaign, and he proved to be a fantastic addition to David Moyes’ squad. He made 16 appearances in the Premier League for the Hammers, scoring nine times and providing five assists as he helped West Ham qualify for the Europa League (Transfermarkt).
However, despite interest from Moyes and co in the summer (via football.london), Lingard stayed put in Manchester instead of making the move south.
Now, though, it appears, United are willing to accept an offer of £15m for the England international, who has featured six times in the league already this term.
Would you like to sign Lingard permanently?
The news was shared on Twitter by @FootballlForAll, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Lingard news below
“Come Home Jesse”
“Don’t you give me hope”
“Lessssgo bring the boy homeee”
“better to take him free 6 months later”
“See you in January x”
“Why pay 15m when you can get him for free 5 months later?”
