‘Ridiculous Waste Of Money’ ‘But Still Might Be Worth It’ Fans Debate Whether West Ham Should Make 15M Transfer Gamble

Manchester United have slashed their asking price for attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard to £15m, according to reports in the English media.

The former West Ham loanee’s contract at Old Trafford expires next summer but he is stalling on a new deal as he wants to be guaranteed more first-team football.

Lingard could be signed for free next July and supporters on Twitter are divided on whether the Hammers should bite the bullet and pay the money in January or wait until the end of the season:



Newcastle have been mentioned as a possible destination in recent days, while Barcelona and AC Milan are also said to be considering Lingard as a signing on a free transfer.

Even so, £15m is a lot for a player who has such little time remaining on his contract. Lingard had a fantastic six-month spell at the London Stadium, though, and we shall see if West Ham push the boat out in order to bring him back.
