Manchester United fans give a mixed reaction to Lingard’s new £100k-a-week deal

Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard put pen to paper on a new deal at the club earlier today, meaning he’ll be a Red Devil until at least 2021, with the option for a further year. The 24-year-old has been at the club since the age of seven, and I’m absolutely delighted for the young man.

The Warrington-born winger is reportedly now on a £100,000-a-week deal, which will net him a hefty amount of money throughout the duration of his four-year contract.

For some reason, Lingard is now coming in for some stick on social media, bizarrely from Manchester United fans. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best tweets, most of which seem really pleased with the deal, and rightly so.

Check out the tweets aimed at Jesse Lingard here:

This is a local lad, who, let’s not forget has played a huge hand in our last two major trophies won. He scored that stunning goal in the FA Cup final in extra time, and also found the back of the net in the EFL Cup final a couple of months ago.

On top of that, he’s a player who always puts in a shift, makes intelligent runs and really is a nightmare for the opposing defenders to deal with. I’m over the moon for Lingard, and now we’ve tied him down for his best years, which is great.
