Much-maligned Manchester United winger agrees new £95,000-a-week contract – report

Manchester United Football Club are still working their way up the Premier League table, with Jose Mourinho’s squad on a good run of late. The gaffer’s ability to chop and change players for different situations is part of the reasoning as to why we’ve been pretty successful.

One of the men that suits the manager’s ideas down to a tee is Jesse Lingard. However, for some reason, the 24-year-old isn’t absolutely adored by all sections of the fanbase – and some really just don’t have any time for him which is a real shame.

That said, The Sun reckon that Jesse Lingard has agreed a new contract at Manchester United, and I believe this is excellent news.

Personally, I’ve never really understood the problem that some Manchester United fans have with Jesse Lingard. He absolutely stinks of United, and he loves the Red Devils like every fan who turns up to Old Trafford on a match day. He gives 100% every time he pulls on that red shirt, and he’s a more than useful squad player who’s ability is vastly underrated.

I for one am delighted he has been handed this new deal, and it will keep him at the club until 2021. He’s a proper hard-working, typical Jose Mourinho player. For me, he deserves it purely due to that wonder strike he scored in the FA Cup final – this is something United fans will always remember him for.
