Manchester United are planning to open contract talks with Jesse Lingard this summer, according to reports in the British media.

ESPN is reporting that the Red Devils will turn their attentions towards tying Lingard down to a new contract after they reached an agreement with Marcus Rashford over a fresh deal.

The same story says that Manchester United are set to offer Rashford a new deal worth £200,000 a week, and once that is concluded, they will turn their attentions to Lingard, 26.

It is claimed in the same article that Manchester United are planning to speak to Lingard about his future – although formal talks have not yet opened.

The England international scored four goals and made two assists in 27 Premier League appearances for Manchester United last season, also making six appearances in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Manchester United confirmed their second signing of the summer over the weekend when they tied up a deal to bring Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils, who have also signed Daniel James this summer, are thought to be on the lookout for a number of other new signings this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prepares for his first full season in charge.
