Man Utd ready to sell Jesse Lingard for just £10MILLION in January – months after pricing West Ham out of transferNovember 13, 2021
JESSE LINGARD could leave Manchester United for £10million in January – less than half the price they valued him at in the summer.
When West Ham tried to sign him in the last window, after a successful loan move, United insisted they wanted £25m.
That was £7m more than the Hammers were willing to pay.
And Lingard himself was keen to prove he still had an Old Trafford future.
But after only eight appearances – and a solitary start in the League Cup – the attacker is no nearer to winning a regular slot, and has dragged his heels over signing a new deal.
Lingard, 28, has continued to train hard and has not been putting the pressure on for a move, with his contract up this season.
Yet United will let him go now, if they can get £10m when the window reopens, even if that means selling to a top four rival in West Ham.
Lingard has a good relationship with Hammers chief David Moyes.

And he is desperate to play, with the World Cup only a year away.
United are hoping Newcastle show an interest, allowing them to hike the price a little, because of his homegrown status.
But they are reluctantly starting to accept he will move to try and resurrect his career, and want to at least bank something from his departure.
