Report: United set Lingard fee

A new report published today claims that Manchester United will want £20 million for Jesse Lingard in the summer

Eurosport are making the claim on a player who has scored three goals and supplied one assist from the five goals he has so far played on loan for us.

It’s clear that Lingard is keen to get away from Old Trafford where he has been since he was a  six-year-old and from everything we have seen or heard from him the Irons would be his choice of destination.

But whether United will get their price for a guy with just a year left on his deal is more than debatable and to get it from us would probably see the Hammers raising the cash from a player sale.

That could be either of Felipe Anderson or Manu Lanzini with Lingard seeming more than keen to link up permanently with David Moyes and the Irons.

The Hammers paid £1.5 million as a loan fee and are picking up his £2.5m wage deal currently.

So it’s pretty clear that they will do all in their power to make a permanent deal happen in the summer.

  1. World of difference between Eurosport estimation and reality. West Ham are more likely to pay around £5 million to Manchester United to buy Jesse out of contract. That is in my estimation.

  2. We must be favourites for Lingard’s signature. That is not to say there won’t be competition, notably from
    Leicester City.
    Additionally, Lingard’s form in the claret and blue won’t have escaped his parent club either. Understandably, Man U will squeeze every penny they can out of the deal and they can’t be blamed for that.
    But, the very big plus in our favour is David Moyes gave Lingard the opportunity to resuscitate his career. It is in the claret and blue his career has been reborn – and David Moyes has played no small part in that.

  3. Hold on didnt we not buy anyone so we could have a bigger budget in the summer ? Then obviously more t.v money will come in ,I know like all other clubs not alot of money is coming in but moyes was given money this season to buy if he wanted to but decided to save it to go towards more money nxt season so why do we have to sell players to buy.. …our squad is way to light as Moyes has said so selling to buy makes zero sence …imo

  4. Pay what we have to. He is a quality player adding massively to our team. If we don’t invest in quality, we are not investing. Average is everywhere.
