The brother ofManchester United forwardJesse Lingard took to Instagram following the club’s final home match of the season to label the side as “classless” after his brother was omitted from the matchday squad for what could prove to be his final match in front of fans for the Old Trafford side. “20 years of blood, sweat and tears, four domestic trophies, three cup final goals. Not even a farewell,” remarked Louie Scott. “Classless and the fans need to realise.”

When asked about Lingard’s absence in the 3-0 victory over Brentford in the Premier League, former interim managerRalf Rangnick stated that the player simply wasn’t match fit and had himself asked to miss the match. “He asked me to allow him some time at home,” said Rangnick after the game. “Tonight was one of those I would have loved to have five subs.”

Indeed, due to Lingard’s contract at Man Utd coming to an end this summer, the England international is widely expected to leave the club, rather than be offered a new deal under new manager Erik Ten Hag. And the manner in which he is likely to leave will disguise the fact that once upon a time the forward was considered a popular player at Old Trafford and a consistent performer.

However, it was inJose Mourinho’s second season at the club that Lingard really hit full stride for his team. In the 2017/18 season the forward bagged 13 goals and seven assists, averaging an incredible 0.68 goals and assists per 90 along the way. The England international was seemingly untouchable as long as Mourinho was picking the team.

That, of course, all changed whenOle Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December 2018 and oversaw the remainder of a season which saw Lingard’s output almost half to just 0.37 goals per 90. Then, rather dramatically, the forward picked up just 1888 minutes of football under the Norwegian manager in the 2019/20 season, bagging just four goals and two assists along the way.

Since then, Lingard has managed just two goals and one assists in two seasons for Man Utd, picking up just 727 minutes of football along the way. And while a brief loan spell at West Ham proved that he was still capable of performing in the Premier League, his standing at Old Trafford has continued to diminish with each passing day.
A potential exit on the cards – West Ham come calling again
Ahead of what is sure to be another busy summer transfer window, the rumour mill has once again heaculy suggested that Lingard’s future lies at the club he was on loan at not so long ago. According to the Guardian, West Ham are weighing up whether to push ahead with a move for the England forward, who would be available on a free transfer but would still demand considerable wages.
According to the English publication,David Moyes is acutely aware of his team’s limitations in attack.Said Benraham has been anything but consistent since joining the club two years ago andNikola Vlasic has struggled to live up to expectation since making the move fromCSKA Moscow last year. As such, Lingard may be the perfect signing to offer experience and proven Premier League quality to the Hammers next season.
