United are set to add Bruno Fernandes at their ranks.
As a result, they could be looking to offload some unnecessary players.
Manchester United star Jesse Lingard‘s time at Old Trafford may be coming to a surprise end as his new agent Mino Raiola hasn’t taken long to plot his move. The out-of-form Englishman is understand to have teamed up with the super agent, according to recent reports with United understand to be upset over that.
It was claimed there were now serious question marks over his future and it seems that may now actually be the case as he edges towards a move abroad. It is certainly surprising given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s high praise for Lingard, making it difficult to imagine it’s the manager who wants him sold. However, the academy graduate has hardly been productive of late and with Bruno Fernandes potentially arriving, it could mean a sale is on.
Inter Milan and Napoli may be strong enough on the wings and attacking-midfield in terms of personnel so perhaps Roma or AC Milan will consider a move.
The Rossoneri in particular are undergoing a revolution of sorts having just signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and so it is not entirely unthinkable Lingard could team up with his former colleague – which has been confirmed by Italian journalist Tancredi Palmieri. That is not to say that the Nerrazurri or Napoli won’t be keen on some squad depth of their own with Antonio Conte seemingly keen on multiple United stars this January window.
Lingard player has played 27 official games this season, with only one goal and one assist to his name. Too little for a player who shone for the Red Devils from 2015-18, and that in the 2017/18 season scored 13 goals and provided six assists.
