GOOD MORNING, UNITED FANS
SunSport have exclusively revealed how Jesse Lingard could leave Manchester United for £10million in January – less than half the price they valued him at in the summer.
When West Ham tried to sign him in the last window, after a successful loan move, United insisted they wanted £25m.
Yet United will let him go now, if they can get £10m when the window reopens, even if that means selling to a top four rival in West Ham.
In other news, United are said to be on the verge of offering David De Gea a new contract.
That’s according to Fichajes reporter Ekrem Konur, who claims United have been so impressed with the keeper, they want him to remain at Old Trafford for the long-term.
De Gea has just 18-months left on his contract, and the Red Devils reportedly do retain an option to trigger a one-year extension.
Meanwhile, Utd are back in talks to sign Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier.
According to Il Tempo, United are in negotiations to bring the 31-year-old to Old Trafford having missed out on his signature in the summer.
And this would allow Roma to sign Diogo Dalot, who has played second fiddle to Aaron Win-Bissaka this term.
United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as the Germans fight to keep him at the club.
Such is their desire to avoid selling him, BVB are prepared to double his wages, according to Bild.
It has been stated that Dortmund are willing to offer him £15million-a-season to convince him to stay.
And finally, Man Utd are keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen starlet Florian Wirtz.
El Nacional report how Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also keen on the 18-year-old midfielder.
Despite it being claimed that the Blues and Los Blancos have shown the most interest in prising the midfielder away from Germany, the player is believed to prefer a move to Barca
