The ongoing and much-needed transformation of the Manchester United squad is set to continue in earnest this summer.
However, whilst we welcome the addition of some much-needed world-class talent, we’re perfectly aware that some of the current squad will be off-loaded not only to balance the books but also to keep the squad to a manageable size.
Last summer, among those we bid farewell to, were Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.
This summer, it would appear, if the news source, Goal, has its facts correct, one player Manchester United are set to sell is Jesse Lingard.
Twenty-seven-year-old Lingard has been a mainstay of the United squad for several years’, but it has become noticeable that the England internationals contribution, this season, has waned.
But, if our quoted source is correct, it remains to be seen which clubs would be looking to sign the player and what the size of the transfer fee would be.
Our view, here at Vital Manchester United, is that Lingard is a decent squad member but hasn’t pressed on to reach the high standard expected of him in his early days with us.
But is that a view you concur with?
Please feel free to drop a few words into our comment facility on the above subject matter.
Would You Be Agreeable If United Sold Lingard This Summer?
