Man Utd to hand Lingard NEW CONTRACT

Manchester United are ready to hand Jesse Lingard a new contract.

The Sun says United are considering handing Lingard a shock new deal – by triggering his one-year option.

The midfielder, 27, is out of contract next summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considering offloading him.

The England ace has been eyed by a number of Premier League clubs, including Everton and West Ham.

Lingard has also been strongly linked with Tottenham.

But United are looking to extend his contract by a further 12 months, to make sure his market value of £25million is kept.

Old Trafford chiefs are planning to exercise their option within the next few weeks.
