‘Lack Of Respect’ – Lingard Angry With United For Not Allowing Him To Leave In January
Jesse Lingard is ‘angered’ with Manchester United’s reluctance to sanction his exit.
Newcastle United have been in contact with the Red Devils for days to find an agreement to sign Lingard either permanently or on loan.
But the Englishman is not believed to be very keen on moving to St James’ Park on a permanent basis, as he enters the final six months of his contract at Old Trafford, but remains interested in moving on loan.
Newcastle are happy to cover Lingard’s wages, but the two clubs are a long way apart on how much the loan fee for the 29-year-old should be.
At this stage, his proposed move to Eddie Howe’s side is on the verge of collapsing, leading to fears within the forward’s camp that he could end up spending the rest of the season on the bench under Ralf Rangnick.
According to the Telegraph, the England international has become increasingly ‘angered and exasperated at his treatment’ by United. He feels he has been shown a lack of respect, and wants United to sanction his loan move to Newcastle before the deadline day.
The Magpies’ latest offer for a six month loan is understood to be worth as much as £6m, and it’s unclear whether they will return with a fresh bid. With just five more days remaining of the window, Newcastle will switch their attention to alternate targets.
