Man Utd boss Rangnick admits Lingard status now improving

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has hinted Jesse Lingard is needed with Mason Greenwood now suspended due to a police investigation.

Greenwood has been released on bail following his arrest on Sunday.

However, United have confirmed the 20-year-old will not train or play for the club until further notice.

It was part of the discussions around Lingard on deadline day, when Newcastle and West Ham were interested in signing him.

In the end, Lingard did not get the move he wanted and Rangnick said the Greenwood situation was part of the reason why.

“Three weeks ago Jesse didn't want to leave and then he changed his mind," said Rangnick.

“I said at the time, if he finds a club and a solution that suits us, we would allow him to leave. With the developments in last couple of days, things changed.

"On Monday afternoon, the board said they wanted him to stay. We are without a player who has played regularly and also we couldn't get an agreement for any other club."
