Jesse Lingard sends message to Man United fans about his future
Jesse Lingard says that he is yet to commit his future to Manchester United and is still in talks with the club
Jesse Lingard has revealed that he is yet to commit his future to Manchester United as he continues talks over a new contract with the club.
The midfielder has been in impressive form for Jose Mourinho’s men this season after breaking into the first team at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal two years ago.
Lingard has scored one goal and made two assists in 15 Premier League games for Manchester United this season.
The England international also scored the Red Devils’ second goal in their League Cup final win over Southampton at Wembley last month.
He has netted five goals in all competitions so far this season but the 24-year-old admits that he would like to have more playing time at Old Trafford.
“No, I haven’t signed a new contract,” Lingard said in an interview with The Daily Express.
“It’s still ongoing talks at the moment. I enjoy playing for Manchester United, and my heart is at Manchester United.
“You always want to play football, to be in the team, and it’s always a battle at United.
“I think that’s good for the group, though. It’s always good to have great players around you.
“You always have to battle for your place and it makes you more hungry to get on the training pitch. And you know when you have your chance, you have to take it.
