Transfer: Lingard angry with Man Utd after they block move to EPL rivals
Manchester United forward, Jesse Lingard, is not happy with the club for refusing to sanction a loan move to Newcastle United.
Lingard is into the final six months of his contract at Old Trafford, but wants to leave Old Trafford in January.
The England international enjoyed a stunning loan spell with West Ham in the second half of last season, but returned to Manchester with the promise of being regularly involved.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to fulfill that promise, with Lingard playing just 88 minutes of Premier League football all season.
Solskjaer was dismissed in November, but the situation has not gotten better under his replacement Ralf Rangnick, as the 29-year-old has been limited to just two short cameos off the bench.
Newcastle are desperate to bring in Lingard, as they look for reinforcements in their battle against the drop.
The Magpies are willing to put up a massive loan fee in order to secure the deal, but their Premier League counterparts are understood to be playing hardball.
The Telegraph report that Lingard feels United’s stance shows a lack of respect for a player that has been with the club for more than two decades.
