Jesse Lingard will return to Manchester United this summer before a decision is made on his future – but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to confirm whether the attacker would be offered a new contract.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Jesse has been brilliant since he left. I’ve answered this quite a few times. Selfishly, we could have kept him because he’s always got a part to play. Jesse’s a fantastic lad around the place, Man United through and through, never once did he moan or cause me a problem (during a lack of playing time), just came in and worked really hard. And he deserved a chance to play more football, that’s why we let him go to West Ham, he deserved a chance for what he’s done throughout his life for Man United. Of course we’ll welcome him back. I hope he goes to the Euros because with his performances now and the confidence he’s got, I don’t think that’s beyond him. And I hope he has a strong finish to the league. It was different here, because Bruno (Fernandes), the form he’s played in arguably Jesse’s favourite position, and that was the decision we made. Delighted for Jesse and wish him well for the rest of the season until he comes back.”
Jesse Lingard will soon enter the final 12 months of his contract and will return to Old Trafford before United decide whether to secure him to fresh terms.
