Manchester United legend Paul Scholes have tipped Jesse Lingard and Fred to leave Manchester United after the two were hooked off after an hour in the 2-1 win over LASK on Wednesday night.
When quizzed about Lingard’s future, Scholes told BT Sport: “I’m not totally sure. I do think when he’s playing well he has something to offer.
“Lately he hasn’t been good enough really. Is he a starting XI player if you’re going to go on to win the league and the big trophies at Man United? I’m not sure he is. I know he scored in the last couple of games.
“Tonight was a game where you think this is a chance for Jesse to play 90 minutes, along with Fred, and when Ole took him off after an hour, I thought then that this is a sign that Ole is probably thinking of moving him on.
“Look, I might be totally wrong about that, but that is just the feeling I get.
“When you’ve got fringe players and you need to get them games, tonight was a perfect opportunity for 90 minutes, he scored a goal as well, his confidence might have grown a little bit.
“I don’t think he was particularly great in the game but to bring him off after an hour when I don’t think there’s any way in the world he’s going to start in the game on Monday, I think that was a little sign.
“And possibly with Fred as well, maybe the same situation, he might be thinking of offloading the pair of them.”
