Transfer: Jesse Lingard keeps Man United waiting


Man United will be forced to keep waiting for Jesse Lingard to make a decision over his future as his words are being expected by the club before the end of the summer transfer window.

With one year left to the end of his contract with the club, Jesse Lingard has been told by the club that he can leave but the 27-year-old has not brought in any formal offer.

Although, Sky Sports reports that his representatives have been holding talks with some English clubs on a possible deal but the player seems not to be decided yet, over his future.

Despite starting a game for Man United for the first time this season against Luton in the Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday, he cannot be guaranteed a starting role in the club this season.

However, Man United must free up the team to be able to accommodate other signings as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that he will be making some signings before the end of the summer transfer window.

The club is currently being affected by the coronavirus pandemic and that can be blamed for their slow summer transfer activities as they have missed out on a number of targets so far.
