Jesse Lingard to leave Manchester United for his own good.
The 28-year old forward made a start in United’s 1-0 win against Watford in the FA Cup but his time at Old Trafford is nearing an end.
He is set to leave the club in January with Sheffield United and Newcastle United keen on landing the England international.
Former United legend Dimitar Berbatov believes Solskjaer has lost faith in Lingard who was once a huge admirer of the talented midfielder.

“Honestly, his time is up,” Berbatov told Stadium Astro.
“He’s not playing. He had his chances to shine, to prove how good he is, how good he can be.
“It shows that, for the moment, Ole does not trust him enough to play him.
“And honestly he doesn’t have anywhere to play in the team right now.
“So when you’ve been so long in one team and, coming to 28, you have to look back and say: ‘Did I achieve enough? Am I happy with what I’ve done here? Is my time up?’
“So I think he needs to move, he needs to go somewhere else to play.
“It’s going to be a lesser team than United, but as long as he gets more playing time to get back to doing what he can do, because I remember him starting for England and scoring goals for England.
“But now that is all gone in my opinion and he needs to rediscover some of the form that he used to have before.”
