Manchester United star questioned after rejecting contract

According to reports, Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has rejected the club’s offer of a new contract.

Lingard wants assurances from United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if he’s to commit his future to the club.

Lingard resurrected his career on loan with West Ham last season, as he scored nine times in 16 appearances.

West Ham tried to sign Lingard on a permanent deal, but United were reluctant to let him leave, as Solskjaer wanted him as an option this season.

Meanwhile, Trevor Sinclair has questioned Jesse Lingard’s ambitions after he decided to stay at Manchester United for the rest of the season.

“If he doesn’t get given the assurances and signs the new deal, then he’s not as ambitious as I’d like him to be,” he told TalkSPORT.

“I am confused, why he didn’t join West Ham permanently? He was loved there, he was the main man. He played once for Manchester United last season, he played 16 times for West Ham. He scored goals, got back into the England squad, why would’t he want to sign for them?”
