West Ham want Jesse Lingard back and have now opted for the free agent following his departure from Manchester United.
Who can forget Lingard was loaned to West Ham last season? Nine goals for four assists in 16 games was just incredible after his January 2021 move.
That form tempted United to keep Lingard rather than sell him, but they could regret that decision greatly.
Lingard started just two Premier League games and now leads Old Trafford on an expired free transfer.
Missing out on the money for Lingard seems like just the kind of decision United are making at the moment, but this against the backdrop of Lingard’s uncertain future.
West Ham want Jesse Lingard again
Lingard finds himself in a position where he appeals as a free agent, but his salary demands seem to be a big problem.
Newcastle liked Lingard but cooled their interest after hearing he wanted a staggering £200,000 a week.
The logical step is for Sinclair to return to West Ham and try to regain that form from last year.
Sky Sports now claims that West Ham have made Lingard an offer in hopes of bringing him back to East London.
West Ham are unlikely to have offered £200,000-a-week but Lingard now has a decision to make.
The 29-year-old simply has to play and shine regularly.
Lingard received that at West Ham last season and the return to play for David Moyes again has to be appealing.
Said Benrahma’s future is uncertain, Nikola Vlasic could leave and Andriy Yarmolenko was sacked this summer.
That means a star signing like Lingard would make perfect sense for West Ham and surely fans would love to see Lingard in claret and blue again.
