PremierLeague-News.Com - Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe remains a fan of Jesse Lingard
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Newcastle United's January target Jesse Lingard still has no takers this summer after the England international saw the Magpies cool their interest in him back in May. Eddie Howe remains a fan of the soon to be out of contract Manchester United man but it remains to be seen whether Lingard reduces his demands. It was believed that Newcastle were not prepared to shell out up to £200,000 per week for the 29-year-old as it would disrupt their wage structure. Howe did something very unusual by his standards after the January window. He actually admitted he wanted Lingard publicly when asked about him at a Press conference. Since then, Lingard and his people have been testing the market.

. The thinking is that Howe doesn't want any huge gaps on salary with some players not even earning half of that on the books. Will they go back? It's still possible but he'd have to be more realistic in his demands and Newcastle have plenty of other options. West Ham, the club where he was a success in 2019/20, could be prepared to get close to those numbers and also retain an interest. But he certainly won't be staying at Old Trafford despite the arrival of Erik ten Hag. A Man United statement read: "Manchester United can confirm that Jesse Lingard will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Jesse for all of the memories he’s helped create during his two decades here and wish him the best of luck in his future career."
