In what could well be a hectic summer transfer market for Manchester United, perhaps the biggest clue as to who Ole Gunnar Solksjaer wants to stay and form part of his squad can be determined by the offers of new contracts being made.
If that is, as I suspect, the plan then it augurs well for our attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard.
According to the tabloid publication, the Sun, Lingard is set to be offered a contract extension that will see his salary increased to £130,000 a week.
Solksjaer obviously sees the international midfielder as a key component of his squad as he assesses the way forward.
In my opinion, Lingard, on his day, can be a player that has the ability to influence the outcome of a game, but am I alone in thinking that he needs to add a little more consistency to his game, or am I just being a little harsh?
