Some Manchester United fans have expressed their excitement on social media with regards to reports that midfielder Jesse Lingard has teamed up with super agent Mino Raiola.

Raiola is currently at war with the club, but most fans won’t mind as they want to see Lingard leave.

The Mirror reported this week that the club have offered Lingard plus £45 million for Leicester City’s James Maddison.

Lingard is known to be a good friend of Paul Pogba, who is one of Raiola’s biggest clients, so his connection with the super agent is no surprise.

Rather than being concerned, fans have taken to social media to celebrate and mock the reported new alliance between player and agent.

“If Raiola takes Lingard out of the club he’ll be a club legend,” one fan tweeted.

Some have suggested that Raiola would be a ‘club legend’ for moving Lingard on, whilst others are hoping his services will also be secured by other deadwood such as Ashley Young and Phil Jones.

Mino Raiola had previously said: “Today, I wouldn’t bring anyone there [#mufc], they would ruin Maradona, Pele and Maldini. Paul [Pogba] needs a team and a club like the first season at Juventus.”
