Manchester United are said to have given the green light to sell Jesse Lingard to Bristol City this summer as they prepare for new reinforcements, according to The Sun, as reported by the Express.
The 22-year-old featured in his team’s first match of the previous campaign, but an injury forced him off as he was unable to retain his role in the squad.
He spent the second half of the season on loan at Derby County and could now make a permanent £2.5million switch to Bristol.
Despite some good displays during United’s USA tour, manager Louis van Gaal is ready to offload the winger in order to make room for another attacker.
It is believed that the Red Devils are closing in on a deal for Barcelona forward Pedro, who is now expected to complete a £22million move to Old Trafford following the imminent departure of Angel Di Maria.
The Argentina international struggled to meet the expectations of his record-breaking move from Real Madrid and is close to making a switch to French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
