Jesse Lingard has attracted the attention of Europe’s giants, with ESPN revealing that Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are all monitoring the 28-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window.
Lingard has taken the Premier League by storm since joining West Ham United on loan from Manchester United in January, scoring eight goals in just nine matches for the London club.
The Hammers – who sit in fourth place in the Premier League table – are hoping to sign Lingard permanently at the end of the season and the England international’s preference is to play in the Champions League next term.
There is no denying that Lingard’s current form is nothing short of incredible, but Real Madrid, PSG and Inter…? Really? No offence to the guy, but it seems a bit much.
If he was attracting attention from those kinds of clubs, United would probably be thinking about keeping hold of him. Lingard is a great player on his day, but he is quite a streaky player.
He would be a brilliant signing for West Ham and he would probably still be a good option if United decided to give him a second chance at the club… but maybe not for a club looking to win the Champions League.
