According to an update by journalist Ekrem Konur on Twitter, Manchester United have asked West Ham to pay €25m (£21.6m) for the permanent signing of Jesse Lingard this summer with negotiations ongoing – and many Hammers fans have gone wild for this ‘fantastic news’.
Lingard has been a revelation for the Irons since signing on loan in the winter transfer window, scoring nine goals and assisting three others under David Moyes in just 10 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
Given his impressive start to life in east London, it’s little wonder that many supporters want the club to make his stay permanent, with Konur explaining that negotiations have already begun. The journalist added that Manchester United have demanded £21.6m for Lingard; and given his form, you could argue that’s a fairly small price to pay.
In response to this ‘fantastic news’, as one West Ham fan called it, many supporters have gone wild and pleaded for GSB to get a deal done as soon as possible.
Read some of their verdicts below.
