Let’s face it, the sooner Manchester United can end their season and the sooner Erik ten Hag can come in and start working with the team, the better it will be for everyone.
The Red Devils may have been able to win 3-0 against Brentford on Monday night in Ralf Rangnick’s final match as manager at Old Trafford, however the newly appointed Austria National Team manager will still be a figurehead at the club.
He will go upstairs and provide assistance between the board and Ten Hag, as it is likely that he will give his input on a host of different things.
Indeed, the arrival of the current Ajax manager might be something that many are looking forward to, especially those who would like to place a wager on the club in the upcoming season after reading a betting guide for Chinese speaking individuals, as there will likely be confidence around the place.
Nonetheless, it would seem that one player may not be sticking around to hear all about it and will perhaps be playing his football elsewhere.
Jesse Lingard is an individual who has been on the peripheral for the club in recent months, despite the fact that he managed to have a season to remember whilst he was on loan at West Ham United for the final six months of the previous campaign.
He returned to Man Utd believing he would get a chance and that simply has not happened, as he has made just 22 appearances all season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Rangnick.
Now, as he is expected to end his time at the club, it has been reported that he is not short of potential suitors.
According to a report by ESPN, it has been claimed that both AC Milan and Juventus are ‘leading the chase’ to sign the England international on a free transfer this summer.
The media outlet states both clubs have made their interest known to Lingard, although it is also suggested that he could also have options in England if he were to decide to remain on these shores and continue to prove his worth to the Premier League.
Indeed, Newcastle United were said to have been interested in signing him in January following their takeover, and it could be a move that they look to re-visit in the summer, especially as the 29-year-old would be available on a free transfer.
