​Early conclusion to new Lingard deal pleases Man Utd boss Mourinho

After Jesse Lingard signed a new contract at Old Trafford until 2021, Jose Mourinho says it was important to get the deal sorted.

When asked if he has been surprised by the 24-year-old, he said:

"No. He is a good player already. Because of his age and happiness in the work, he can be even better. He is English. Made in academy.

"These players are very important for clubs. It is a very important contract. I congratulate him and the board to agree with him and give stability to me. Important for me to know he is not in danger."
