Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a move for Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard.
That is according to a report from the Daily Star, who claim that the England international is wanted by his former boss Jose Mourinho. Lingard was reportedly left ‘seething’ after missing out on United’s opening fixture of the Premier League season, a disappointing 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace at home.
The report claims that United would be looking for a fee in the region of £30 million to sell the player, who has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford in recent times.
The report has, predictably, caused quite the stir online.
Unfortunately for Lingard, the vast majority of Tottenham fans have not reacted to the news with great excitement.
It won’t come as a surprise, of course, considering his dip in form over the past couple of seasons.
That price-tag is also something Tottenham fans are struggling to believe, considering the 27-year-old’s recent form.
However, there are some Tottenham fans who are willing to give Lingard a chance. He found his best form at Old Trafford when Jose Mourinho was the manager and it is easy to forget he was one of the stars of the England team that got to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018.
But one thing nearly every Tottenham fan agreed on was that price-tag, which seems alarmingly high for a player in the form Lingard has recently showcased.
Lingard would be a good signing imo

We already have Dele we don’t need another player who has all the talented necessary but doesn’t want to use it.
