Jesse Lingard maybe on the lookout for a move away from Manchester United as his agent Mino Raiola has reportedly offered him to AC Milan, according to Italian outlet Sport Italia.
The Englishman recently changed his management and brought in Raiola. The Dutchman has a very shaky relationship with United after having delayed and complicated many deals due to his compulsive need to extract a big chunk of money from all of it.
The Red Devils have offloaded the super agent’s colleagues Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku but have stuck with Paul Pogba.
Furthermore, it was widely reported that United’s move for Erling Braut Haaland – who is also a client of the Italian-born agent – fell through after they refused to comply with the agent fee demands.
Clearly, the man is not a fond presence at Old Trafford.
However, Raiola is said to have maintained a good relationship with the Milan outfit with whom he’s currently proposing a move for his client. Lingard’s sudden change of agents could be a result of him wanting an exit.
The playmaker has somehow managed to go through the entirety of 2019 without registering a league goal or assist despite being a regular in the team. Clearly, that’s not the output of a decent offensive player.
Nevertheless, there is no sign form the Mancunians that they will offload the England international midway through the season. Especially with Pogba and Scott McTominay out of action whilst Andreas Pereira has constantly underperformed.
The San Siro outfit on the other hand find themselves in a worse spot than the English giants as they sit 12th on the Italian league table. The 27-year-old may want an exit from Manchester but the red side of Milan may not be the best destination.
