Manchester United confirm Jesse Lingard will follow Paul Pogba until exit when his contract expires at the end of the month, after more than 20 years with the Premier League side


Manchester United have confirmed that Jesse Lingard will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the month.

The midfielder, who came through the club’s academy, leaves after making 232 appearances and scoring 35 times.

He was a key member of the Red Devils squad, which saw him score the winning goal for United as they came from behind to beat Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final in 2016.

But, despite a successful loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season, Lingard has played little football in recent years.

The 29-year-old was denied a loan move during the January transfer window and had various well-documented issues with caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick.

Other players also leaving this summer, such as Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, have had the option of being sent off, but Lingard has often been left on the bench.

A statement released by the club on Wednesday ends: “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. “

The Red Devils have also confirmed that fellow United academy graduate Paul Pogba, whom they once released before buying him for £89million, will also leave at the end of June.
