The 29-year-old has barely played since he was denied a move to either Newcastle or West Ham

Back in January, Manchester United denied Jesse Lingard the option of joining Newcastle or West Ham, despite his contract expiring in June.

The decision is said to have left the 29-year-old outraged as he wanted to play football regularly again after falling out of favor at Old Trafford.

Back then, the Red Devils didn’t want to sell to a top-four West Ham rivals while trying to capitalize on Newcastle’s newfound wealth by charging a £2.5m loan fee and a £12m bonus if they could would avoid relegation (Guardian).

What’s the matter?

Well, if Lingard was angry in January, he’s probably even angrier now.

The England international just made two begins for Manchester United since the January transfer window closed.

Clearly Ralf Rangnick has no interest in using him regularly, which makes the club’s decision to keep him – against his will – all the more bizarre.

Manchester United should have simply taken a fee back and reinvested in someone who Erik ten Hag will use once he arrives.

However, they have now missed that opportunity while losing even more money by paying Lingard £80,000 per week wages during the time he was left out.

Newcastle and West Ham are said to be in contention for Jesse Lingard

It was sad to see Lingard left out as he is a good player who – as we saw at West Ham last season – can have a huge impact on the Premier League.

Therefore, if he becomes a free agent this summer, Newcastle and West Ham should be fighting tooth and nail for his signature.

We already know what Lingard can do at West Ham under David Moyes and there’s no reason he can’t replicate it at Newcastle under Eddie Howe.

Facing a midfield duo of Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes and supported by Allan Saint-Maximin on the flank, Lingard would have quality players to help him thrive on Tyneside.

Keep an eye on his situation because anything could happen this summer.
