Jesse Lingard Close To Signing New Manchester United Contract

share on:

Jesse Lingard is reportedly set to sign a new deal with Manchester United and double his current £30,000-per-week wage.

The 23-year-old has 18 months left on his existing deal and the Daily Mail report United are keen to prevent him going into the final year of his contract.

He is apparently in line for a new four-year contract at Old Trafford.

The United academy graduate has enjoyed an promising start to the season under Jose Mourinho, resulting in Gareth Southgate handing the forward his first senior England caps in the World Cup qualification clashes against Malta and Slovenia last month..

Lingard has seen his stock rise rapidly in recent months after scoring a brilliant extra-time winner for United in their FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace in May.

His recent England debut has further bolstered his reputation as one of the best emerging homegrown talents in the country, and Lingard is now set to reap the benefits on and off the pitch.
