Milan interested in signing Lingard as a free agent

According to ESPN, Milan are among the clubs interested in signing Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard as a free agent.

Lingard’s contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of the season and the former West Ham loanee is not willing to sign a new deal with the Red Devils.

According to the report, Lingard is frustrated by lack of playing time at Man United and has already rejected a contract offer from the club.

The 28-year-old is determined to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season and Milan are among the clubs interested in securing his services in the summer.

However, the Englishman could leave Old Trafford even before as he may hand in a transfer request in the January transfer window.

Lingard wants to get regular playing time to have more chances to make it into England’s World Cup squad next year.

Gareth Southgate dropped him during the last international break. Lingard has only played five Premier League games this season, managing to score twice.
