Lingard’s summer options examined

Jesse Lingard’s West Ham future could probably be best described as a realistic possibility  rather than a given!

And come the summer we are going to find out whether the special relationship the manager has with his former Manchester United player is strong enough to bring him to the club permanently.

We understand that the position currently is that the Old Trafford club are not ready to sell him immediately the season ends.

They would sooner he goes out on loan again and with six months in the shop window sell at Christmas unless they get an offer they can’t refuse.

The hope will be that three or four clubs come in and start an auction although the Hammers will remain in a strong position following his current spell at the club.

Rio Ferdinand made it clear on BT Sport last night that Moyes and the player have a great  relationship and sources at the club have confirmed that to us.

And there is every chance that the 28 year old midfielder will be keen to stay with  Moyes and the Hammers.

He is currently priced at £9 million (https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/jesse-lingard/profil/spieler/141660) although that site’s prices are normally on the low side so add £3-£4 million.

Interesting times ahead!

  1. The better he plays, the more he costs us.
    Difficult position, if he plays well many will be lining up for him and wages will be increasing.
    Tough one really, I can see Man U waiting until deadline day for the largest bidder and our priorities being two centre forwards and limited budget its a tough one.
    I think he might be one to enjoy whilst we can,

    • If Lingard likes it and is getting on well then I think he will have the main say in what happens.
      You can’t really make a player do something he doesnt want to.

  2. How will they make him move to another club that he doesn’t want to go to? He will simply refuse the transfer. If Man U don’t want him he can be a royal pain in the butt around the club. I think back to Arnie and le Snake. Make enough waves and you get your desired move.

    • No loyalty in football any more. Every man has a price and I’ve grown to understand that even more over the last few seasons.
      Westham had been slow to realise this fact in recent transfer windows. Wr could have kept Arnie if GSB put enough money in his contract… the players know that their playing years are limited so they must make the most amount possible….it’s human nature, like any other job.

  3. Seriously, when you consider what we paid for Haller and Anderson, the prices being touted could be doubled and he’d still be well worth it given his impact. That’s strictly between us mind 🙂

  4. The next few months will shape it, but assuming it continues as it is, then surely we must wear our heart on our sleeve and go all out to get him. Of course, Man U will have the say, but so will Jesse! If we have to pay a few mill more because he has proven to be a good fit, is happy and keen, then step up.

  5. I am openly a full naysayer of his when he wasnt getting picked and went he did he wasnt having the desired effect at man u. Ive been callimg him **** for ages and its more down to my childhood hatred of united than him. I think he has been fantastic and when i heard he was coming i thought he would be fantastic i cant deny his quality realistically besides my own fickle bias. I hope he smash this half of the season and even if it ups the price and he wants to stay i hope we buy him. Finishing high in the league and possible europeon football with loosen the purse strings a little and attract a different caliber of player which could bring more out of soucek rice benrahma and lingard. This is all in my opinion…. coyi ⚒⚒⚒
