Jesse Lingard returns to United for pre-season training

Jesse Lingard has returned to Carrington for pre-season training with Manchester United.

This is in a hint that Jesse Lingard could be staying at the club.

Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic were also spotted driving into training along with Lingard.

The midfielder, 28, has not trained with United since departing for West Ham on loan in January.

Jesse Lingard has recently returned to the UK after going to Greece on holiday.

In Greece, he was training with former United team-mate Adnan Januzaj.

He has since undergone a period of isolation before teaming up with the rest of the United squad once again.

Lingard’s future is still in doubt with rumours suggesting the Hammers could move back in for him.

West Ham failed to include an option to buy Lingard in the original loan deal.

But the club will reportedly do anything it takes to bring him back to the London Stadium.

And it was believed that a possible deal was being held up due to United concentrating on securing a move for Jadon Sancho.

But now that has been finalised it is possible Lingard will leave Old Trafford on a permanent basis.

The Red Devils seeking around £30million to let him leave.

Jesse Lingard was close to going to Euro 2020 but Gareth Southgate cut him from the England squad.

He was cut off just before the tournament commenced.

Instead, he became a fan over the last month and was spotted cheering on his team-mates with supporters in a pub.

He also cheered on England from his home for the final due to him having to quarantine.

Lingard posted an image of himself in a Three Lions shirt on Instagram.
