With the help of new manager Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United duo dealt with lifelines. Hopefully, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard will benefit from this development.
It appears that Erik ten Hag wants the pair to be a part of his squad next season, which might lead to Jesse Lingard doing a U-turn after it appeared as though he would be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Lingard and Rashford are expected to be given a second chance at United under Ten Hag when he takes over as manager ahead of next season, according to the Sun.
Lingard could easily turn down Ten Hag’s lifeline offer and move on instead, and it will be interesting to see if he can replicate his form on loan at West Ham last season — throughout an entire season elsewhere – but there is no denying that he has not received enough minutes this season. Lingard has not played in the Premier League this season.
That’s why it’s probably a good idea for Lingard to leave the team.
Meanwhile, ESPN reports that the England international wants to leave Old Trafford for first-team play after falling out of favor with the Red Devils, and it is possible that a move to Italy is the most likely next step in his career.
That would be surprising to me because I don’t believe Lingard is enthusiastic about the prospect of leaving England.
Lingard has been linked with a move to both Newcastle United and West Ham United in recent week
