Jesse Lingard was dubbed as Manchester United’s own Xavi back when he was a young prospect. Fast forward to 2020 and he was injured most of the time and the time he was not injured, he was out of form. Having Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek ahead of him in the pecking order was not helping the English midfielder. Despite that Manchester United chose to activate the option of an extra year on Jesse Lingard’s contract and now have loaned him out to West Ham United.
Jesse Lingard is enjoying life at West Ham United with his vibrant and active style of play
David Moyes sanctioned a loan move for Jesse Lingard and now is reaping the benefits of that decision. That England attacking midfielder now has 3 goals in 4 matches and is expected to continue his form for the rest of the season. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer stated that Jesse Lingard indeed has a future at the club and will be expected to come back revitalized from his loan at West Ham United.
There is no loan clause inserted into the contract with West Ham United and the club also have no option or obligation to sign the midfielder. In the case that they want to sign him on a permanent deal, they will have to submit a formal bid to Manchester United. Lingard won’t come for cheap since he has only two years left on his contract. On the other hand, a revitalized Jesse Lingard could be an advantage for Manchester United as Bruno Fernandes could be rested for more occasions now.
