Manchester United player ready to make U-turn on future after Erik ten Hag encouragement

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is reportedly ready to make a U-turn on his future after being encouraged by new boss Erik ten Hag.

Man United last month announced that Ten Hag will become their new permanent boss, who will replace current interim manager Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season.

A host of senior players are set on leaving Manchester United at the end of the season due to limited playing time and contract issues.

Lingard is one of the players who are set on leaving The Red Devils in the summer and will do so as a free agent, with Newcastle United and West Ham expected to seal his signature.

However, the England international has been encouraged by Ten Hag’s appointment according to The Sun, and feels that the Dutchman’s playing style could benefit him if he stays at the Theatre of Dreams.

Paul Scholes recently claimed that the 29-year-old, who he hailed as a very good midfielder, could decide to remain at Old Trafford if the Dutchman wanted him at United.

Scholes, speaking on talkSPORT, said: “We all saw what he did at West Ham. He’s [Jesse Lingard] a really good footballer and can bring goals to a team.

“I think he might suit him [Erik Ten Hag] and he might want to keep him. We will see what happens.

“It’s obvious he never wants to leave Manchester United, and if this manager wants him then why wouldn’t he stay?”
