Juventus, Barcelona ‘ready to join Jesse Lingard race’

Juventus, Barcelona ‘ready to join Jesse Lingard race’

A number of foreign clubs have reportedly identified Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard as a potential transfer target ahead of the summer.

On deadline day, United rejected interest from Newcastle United and West Ham United, despite the 29-year-old having just five months left on his contract.

Later in the week, interim boss Ralf Rangnick suggested that Lingard had requested time off to overcome the frustration of missing out on a new challenge, only for that claim to be refuted by the England international.

As it stands, Lingard is increasingly likely to leave Old Trafford at the end of his contract, and Fichajes claims that the player is not short of admirers abroad.

The report claims that Juventus, Barcelona and Valencia are ready to join Newcastle and West Ham in attempting to sign Lingard on a free transfer.

Lingard, who has been provided with just 88 minutes of Premier League football, is likely to take his time to assess his options before making a decision on his future.
