Manchester United fans react to reports of new contract talks for Jesse Lingard

After enduring an inconsistent campaign last season, it is fair to say Jesse Lingard was one of a number of Manchester United players who came in for criticism for their performances.

The England international seemed to undergo a revival in the early weeks and months of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign in charge, but appeared to fade away towards the closing stages of the season, failing to score a single goal for club or country since January.

Now, according to a report from ESPN, after Marcus Rashford was awarded a bumper new contract at Old Trafford, Lingard will be next in line for the next round of renewal talks.

The news saw United fans take to Twitter to air their thoughts on the matter and many were unimpressed by the idea that the 26-year-old could be rewarded for a rather under-par campaign.

Indeed, supporters of the Manchester side insisted that the club could not progress on a consistent basis if it kept on handing out new deals for “undeserving players”.

A few resigned fans simply accepted that this was the current plight of the situation at the club and that it was hardly surprising that players like Lingard were potentially being given massive wages for mediocrity.
