Tottenham fans react as Manchester United player Jesse Lingard is linked

Tottenham are one of several clubs battling it out to sign Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard – and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.

Spurs are keen to bolster their ranks during the January transfer window and may target another creative player.

Lingard has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He is yet to play a single minute in this season’s Premier League, with his three outings all coming in cup competitions.

Lingard would welcome the chance to leave United this month in search of regular first-team football.

West Ham, Sheffield United, Inter Milan, Nice and Marseille are all apparently monitoring the situation, according to TalkSPORT.

Lingard has scored four goals in 24 appearances for England and has been at United through the youth ranks.

The interesting thing about the Tottenham links are that it would provide him with a chance to reunite with Jose Mourinho.

Lingard played some of his best football at United under Mourinho, helping the club to Europa League glory in 2017.

The £75,000-a-week player has lost his way in recent years but playing under the Special One could be just the tonic for a revival.

Tottenham fans don’t agree, however, with plenty firmly against the idea.

Here is what they have been saying on Twitter about the recent link.
