Jesse Lingard will likely live Manchester United, but it won’t be for free as the team has plan to trigger their 12-month extension with the player.

Winter transfer window is about to open, and as the contract between him and the club is about to expire by the summer of 2021, Lingard can start negotiating with any club in the upcoming week. However, Manchester United won’t let their player go for free and consider to trigger the 12-month extension regulation on Jesse Lingard. On the contract he signed in 2017, Lingard agreed to an option of extending his service in 12-month.

The former player of Manchester United youth academy made his breakthrough with Manchester United in the season of 2015-2016, during the management of Louis Van Gaal. Lingard then continued to perform for the senior team of Manchester United until now. He scored his first goal for the Red Devils on 7th. November, 2015 in a match against West Bromwich Albion.

So far, Lingard has played a total of 200 games for the English side, accomplishing FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League respectively.

Sadly, Lingard eventually turned out to be an extended part of Manchester United and the side has planned to sell him out since last season.

He once was the important part of England national team in World Cup 2018, the tournament that the Three Lions made it to the semi-finals for the first time since World Cup 1990. But this season, Lingard has only displayed 2 times for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team — both coming in the Carabao Cup. 

His extension actually won’t solve his struggle at Manchester United but allows the club to loan him out before selling him out in the summer of 2021.

About his international career, the last time Lingard performed for England national team was in June of 2019 and it was literally about 2 years since the last time he capped for his national team. What a shameful dropping has happened to Lingard.

Everton and several clubs around Europe expressed their interest for Lingard the most, and he potentially could move to these clubs on a loan contract before officially joining these sides. What we know so far about Lingard is that he is unusual substitution of Solskjaer and the Norwegian coach is about to sell him.
