Jesse Lingard ‘undecided’ on Man Utd return despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer charm offensive


Jesse Lingard is reportedly undecided on his Manchester United future, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer launching a charm offensive.

Lingard struggled to break past the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba at the Red Devils, failing to make a Premier League appearance for them this season.

In a search for game time, Lingard was sent out on loan to West Ham in the January transfer window and he has thrived under David Moyes at the London Stadium.

Since joining the Hammers, Lingard has scored eight goals and assisted three more, helping Moyes’ men to mount a serious challenge for the Champions League places.

The midfielder’s form has seen him recalled to the England squad and linked to several Premier League clubs, with his United contract entering its final year.

The 28-year-old’s performance has also led to Solskjaer opening the door to a return to contention at the Red Devils.

“Jesse has been brilliant since he left. Selfishly, we could have kept him because he’s always got a part to play,” Solskjaer said.

“Jesse is a fantastic lad around the place, he’s Man Utd through and through, and never once did he moan or cause me a problem.

“We will welcome him back. I hope he’ll go to the Euros with his performances now and the confidence he has got, I don’t think that’s beyond him, and I hope he has a strong finish to the league.

“Then, it was different here because Bruno [Fernandes] the form he has shown and he played arguably in Jesse’s favoured position and that was just a decision we made.”

But Goal report that despite Solskjaer’s comments, Lingard remains uncertain about where his future lies, though he wants to play for a club competing in the Champions League.

They also claim that he wants assurances that he will receive more playing time than the first half of the season if he was to return to United for next season.
