Man United fans react to Lingard’s reported contract renewal

As reported by The Sun, Jesse Lingard has renewed his Manchester United contract, now earning an incredible £95,000 per week. The paper says that his contract will run until 2021 with option of an extra year.

It’s an eye-watering amount of money for a player who has hardly been a regular first team starter this season. The winger has started just 9 Premier League games this season.

However, it seems he’s rated by Jose Mourinho and if The Sun are correct, he joins Fellaini as the latest to extend his contract at the club this January.

The England international now has the breathing room to grow into the Manchester United shirt, but now faces even more pressure to impress given he has reportedly tripled his salary.

Manchester United fans haven’t exactly been enthused by the news, many feeling it’s far too much money for a player who hasn’t particularly impressed for the Red Devils this term.

Does it send the wrong impression to Manchester United’s aspiring youth? Or is it simply good business?
