Manchester United confirm Jesse Lingard joins Paul Pogba to leave club this summer when contract expires

Lingard joined the club’s academy over 20 years ago and has been a United player ever since, despite being loaned out several times during his professional career.

Most recently, he joined West Ham in January 2021 for the final months of the season and made a significant impact at the London Stadium, scoring nine goals in 16 Premier League appearances during his time at the club.

David Moyes’ side have been linked with the 29-year-old again this summer on a free transfer, but it remains to be seen if the club are ready to meet Lingard’s wage demands.

During his time at United, Lingard made 232 appearances and scored in FA Cup and League Cup final wins, while he also has a Europa League medal from the 2016/17 season.

Man United’s statement concluded: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jesse for all the memories he has helped create during his two decades here and wish him the best of luck in his future career.”

Lingard’s departure was announced the same day it was confirmed that Paul Pogba would also leave the club for free, the second time he has done so in his career. Again, Juventus seem like the most likely destination.
