Lingard 'to consider £10million-a-year Saudi Arabian deal'

Jesse Lingard is ‘set to make a decision over £10m-a-year offer from Saudi Arabian club’ – as the former Manchester United midfielder considers MLS and Premier League interest ahead of summer move

  • Jesse Lingard is set to make a decision over his future by the end of the week 
  • Former Man United midfielder has offers from a number of different clubs 
  • He has received a £10million-a-year deal from an unnamed Saudi Arabian side Lingard is understood to favour a move to another Premier League team

Jesse Lingard is set to make a decision over his future this week amid interest from Saudi Arabia, MLS and Premier League teams.

The 29-year-old, who left Manchester United this summer after 11 seasons with the first-team, is hoping to finalise a move to a new club by the end of the week.

Lingard’s preference would be to stay in the Premier League but is understood to have three deals on the table – including one incredibly lucrative offer from abroad.

According to The Athletic, the former England international is considering an option from Saudi Arabia, which would see him earn $11.8million per year (£10milion).

Despite interest from Wayne Rooney’s DC United, Lingard will not be playing his football in America next year.  

Rooney, who moved stateside after his stint in charge of Derby County, was hoping to bring his former United team-mate to the U.S – but that looks increasingly unlikely.

Lingard favours a move to another Premier League side, with West Ham already opening negotiations with his agent last month – and Frank Lampard’s Everton also interested in the midfielder’s services.

Lingard left Manchester United at the end of his contract last month. It marked the end of an 11-year stay with the club that saw him win an FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.

The 29-year-old has also enjoyed a memorable England career to date, with six goals in 32 games for the three lions including a memorable strike against Panama in the 2018 World Cup. 

Despite an impressive loan spell with the Hammers in 2021 – Lingard failed to break into United’s starting eleven last season and started just two games before leaving for free.
