Lingard open to leaving Manchester United

England forward Jesse Lingard is open to the idea of leaving Manchester United, with both Roma and Atlético Madrid interested in signing him.

The 27 year old has had a poor season so far, scoring just 2 goals and providing one assist in 32 appearances, with well documented off-the-field issues affecting his form.

His lack of consistency has aroused the ire of a section of the United fan base, and he has been abused heavily on social media by a small group of supporters. That has made his consider his long-term future at the club, despite his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanting him to stay.

Lingard, who is under contract until 2021, with the option for a further year, had another disappointing performance on Saturday night against Wolves in the Premier League, frequently giving the ball away until he was substituted off in the 65th minute by a frustrated Solskjaer.
