Jesse Lingard explains choosing Man Utd over Man City, Liverpool

Jesse Lingard has revisited his original move to Manchester United.

Lingard has revealed he turned down Liverpool and Manchester City to sign with United as a nine-year-old.

Lingard said on The Official Manchester United Podcast, "It was left down to me to pick a club and I felt United were best suited to me personally.

"(Manchester) City, Liverpool, Everton and I think Crewe at the time (were interested) but I knew Man United was my home.

"I have a picture in a United kit when I was one year old. When I was seven I had trials and signed when I was nine."
