Jesse Lingard didn’t have the best of time at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and had to leave the club on a loan deal after a long spell out of the first team.

However, the 28-year-old looked a reborn player after he scored nine goals and assisted five more to help West Ham qualify for the Europa League.

Lingard was on fire for the Hammers, and it has now led to an increase in his transfer value.

According to reports, Manchester United’s hierarchy are divided over the future of Lingard after his impressive loan spell at West Ham United last season.

Lingard’s scintillating loan stint with the Hammers has caught the eyes, and West Ham are keen on having him permanently.

Lingard has just a year left on his Manchester United contract, meaning the club must make a decision on him this summer.

Reports have it that the Manchester United hierarchy are split on whether to cash in or keep the buzzing midfielder at Old Trafford.

The Athletic claim United are holding out for a fee of £30m – an amount that the Hammers feel is too much for a player close to the end of his contract.

Keep or sell — what do you think is the best move for Lingard?
