Picture: Jesse Lingard enjoying holiday with reported Mourinho transfer target

Manchester United’s players have all jetted off for some time away from the beautiful game following a pretty successful season. The Red Devils won two trophies but now attentions switch to bringing in new players whilst clearing some of the dead wood.

One face that Jose Mourinho’s team have been pretty heavily linked with is Michael Keane, a 24-year-old centre-back who has been playing some brilliant stuff for Burnley this season.

Now yesterday, an image of Michael Keane surfaced on Jesse Lingard’s Snapchat account, and it appears that the pair are off holidaying in Dubai with a few other young footballers. Obviously, in the social media age, this sent some reds into complete meltdown and I’m not quite sure why…

Have a look at Jesse Lingard’s Snapchat photo of Michael Keane here:

People tend to forget that these guys grew up together playing for the Manchester United youth teams, and both were a vital part of that 2011 FA Youth Cup run which resulted in the young lads lifting the trophy alongside the likes of Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison.

I see this as two mates having fun together away from the spotlight of football. Do I think Jesse Lingard knows what he was doing? 100% yes, but I reckon that’s just him having a bit of fun with the media of the world as that is the kind of character that he is.
