Football, Manchester United, PREMIER LEAGUE, Sports, TRANSFER
Manchester United won at Derby County today, 2-1, in their first preseason match of the season. (For the game news and notes go here). After the match Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dismissed the narrative that Jesse Lingard will be leaving the club this summer. According to various reports at differing points of the summer, Lingard has been linked with Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and of course West Ham. The Hammers are reportedly very interested, and why shouldn’t they be, given how well he performed with them during his second half of the season loan spell. Lingard re-ignited his then moribund career in East London, and that fine form has inspired him to stay at Old Trafford and try to win back a place in the team. “Jesse has come back, been bright, he wants to fight for his place...
