According to the latest Man Utd Transfer News, Lingard and Pellistri are set to leave. Both of these players are not in the squad list of Premier League this season. Moreover, Old has already made it clear that he wants more quality on his squad as United are looking favourites to win the title this season.
West Ham United and Sheffield Utd have shown their interest for Jesse Lingard. The 28- year old, the midfielder was rumoured to join on-loan Inter Milan, but, no deal is final yet. They could depart at the end of the transfer deadline on Jan 31st.
Earlier this month, Manchester United have signed 18-year-old Amad Diallo from Atalanta. The youngster has impressed the manager with his skills in training. On the other hand, Brendon Williams will not leave the club after United permanently sold full-back Timothy Fosu-Mensah to German club Bayern Leverkusen.
Man Utd Transfer News: Jesse Lingard to West Ham
West Ham has offered £1 million loan fee for Jesse Lingard. As per details, this offer is likely to go through. However, this offer is lower than what Man Utd demanded, but it still looks fair as everyone is facing the pandemic’s challenge. Chances are Hammers will take the 28-year-old soon.
Lingard has only played 3 times this season. He is not part of the current starting squad. Ole placed him on the bench against Liverpool in FA Cup 5th round tie.
Last year, Jadon Sancho was the main target, and United is hoping to sign the world-class winger in this January Transfer window. However, Dortmund has clearly denied the request, and they have no plans to sell their main player.
In the end, Ole has a decent squad, and they are looking good this season with Marcus Rashford scoring regularly in big games.
