Jesse Lingard rejects new United deal

England forward Jesse Lingard has rejected a contract offer from Manchester United.

It is understood Lingard has concerns about how often he is likely to play this season.

This is due after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Jesse Lingard, who scored twice in Sunday’s World Cup win against Andorra, impressed during a loan spell at West Ham last season.

The 28-year-old’s current United deal runs out at the end of the season.

Lingard did have offers to move in the summer, with West Ham especially keen for him to return.

He has just four minutes of Premier League action under his belt so far this term.

Jesse Lingard came off the bench in the draw at Southampton last month.

However, it will become more apparent how much he is likely to be used by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In the next three weeks, United open their Champions League and Carabao Cup campaigns.

This is in addition to playing four league matches.
