Jesse Lingard representatives continue talks with interested parties

According to reports, Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and his representatives have continued talks with interested parties, despite United not receiving any formal offers for the midfielder.


The Englishman has been on the brink of a move away from United, with his playing time being immensely restricted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


Solskjaer admitted that he could not guarantee Lingard a starting spot, especially with United's midfield being extremely congested and the Norwegian manager having plenty of options.


However, Solskjaer did praise Lingard for his performance against Luton Town in the EFL Cup this week, with his runs off the ball being very impressive.


Despite all of this, Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with a move for Lingard, offering the 27-year-old the chance of reuniting with former manager Jose Mourinho, who is a big fan of him after the successful 2017/18 season, where Lingard finished with 13 goals and seven assists in all competitions, as United finished second in the Premier League.


Lingard has also been linked with AC Milan and Carlo Ancelotti's Everton, yet Milan also have an extremely congested midfield, whilst Ancelotti has managed to secure the signing of James Rodriguez, effectively ending their interest in Lingard.


The chance of Lingard moving to Spurs largely rests on Dele Alli's future at the club, with Mourinho reportedly not the biggest of fans of Alli, and he hopes to replace him with one of his former United players.


Lingard reportedly has a value of around £30 million, yet with his form in recent seasons, he would probably cost much less than that.
