Saudi-backed Newcastle United reportedly prioritized Jesse Lingard’s signature when the January transfer window opened.
according to Times, Newcastle is willing to make Lingard the best earner in club history. This will be their main bargaining tactic in the coming years to attract well-known players to St. James’s Park.
Lingard’s representative is discussing the move with Newcastle, who is reportedly offered a four-and-a-half-year contract. The numbers haven’t been mentioned yet, but England International is said to exceed Miguel Almiron (£ 100,000 a week) as Newcastle’s premier paying player.
I can only imagine West Ham having something to say about it.
However, Lingard’s time at Old Trafford feels like it’s nearing its end, and the midfielder contract is set to expire next summer. He isn’t close enough to play for next year’s Gareth Southgate World Cup team and can’t be happy to sit on the bench every week at the age of 28.
We already know that United is at risk of losing Paul Pogba for free in the summer, but the same could happen with Lingard unless 1) agree to extend the deal or 2) sell out in January with a price cut. there is.
Can the club afford to lose two valuable assets for free in the summer? There is no doubt that Ed Woodward convinces his favorite journalist that United is freeing up space on the wage table, but they will be badly criticized for it.
