Jesse Lingard’s Manchester United contract expires at the end of the season and the England international is yet to sign a new contract.
According to The Sun via Metro, Manchester United will sell Lingard for £15million in January if the England international fails to sign a new contract by December.
Lingard has been offered a £135,000-a-week contract by Manchester United but he is yet to agree to the proposal as he wants assurances over how much game time he will get at Old Trafford.
Lingard is yet to start a Premier League game for Manchester United this season but has made three substitute appearances, scoring two goals.
Meanwhile, Lingard has openly admitted that he would look elsewhere for regular first team football if it is not coming at Old Trafford, as he wants to be in the England squad for the 2022 World Cup.
“Obviously, the World Cup is a long way away but you need regular football. I was so close to going to the Euros and I think it plays a huge part and it’s a big factor,” said Lingard.
“If you’re playing over 20 or 25 games, you know you’re knocking on the door. I’m not doing any harm at the moment – if I keep performing well you never know what might happen so I keep confident in myself and when I get time on the pitch I’ve got to carry on doing what I’m doing.
“You want to start games. When I’m a sub I’m always ready to play. It’s one of those things I’m going through at the moment but I think on recent performances hopefully we’ll see a change in the next few weeks.”
