West Ham Unsure Whether They Can Afford Permanent Jesse Lingard Deal

Published

on

West Ham fear Jesse Lingard will return to Manchester United this summer because they do not have the funds available to pursue a permanent deal for the England international.

After joining the Hammers on loan in January, Lingard has been in immense form. He has scored nine goals and contributed four assists in just 13 games in all competitions, and as you can imagine, that has left West Ham keen to keep him on a permanent basis.

There is no option to buy in Lingard’s loan contract, however, so West Ham would be forced to negotiate a standard transfer with United.

It is thought that Lingard is open to staying at the London Stadium, but according to the Daily Mail, he might have priced himself out of a move with some contract demands that the Hammers do not feel they can match.

Lingard has asked for a four-year contract worth £100,000-a-week, but West Ham believe they cannot find space for that on a wage budget which has been decimated by the loss of income from the COVID-19 pandemic. The club made losses of £65m last season and are expected to be hit even harder this year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always left the door open to a potential return for Lingard at Old Trafford, but there are doubts over where his minutes would come from. Bruno Fernandes is the undisputed number one in United’s midfield, with Donny van de Beek already floundering because of the lack of opportunities afforded to him.

It’s hard to see how Lingard would work his way back into the side, but Sportsmail claim that there aren’t too many suitors lining up to sign him either. It’s not that teams haven’t been impressed by his form, but rather a reluctance to meet his wage demands in a post-pandemic world.

He has been linked to some big teams who, on paper, couldafford that kind of money. Real Madrid, PSG and Inter were all credited with an interest in Lingard in April, but tracking a player’s form and committing to an expensive transfer are two very different things.

As it stands, Lingard appears set to return to Old Trafford – where he will find himself at somewhat of a crossroads.

A 23-year-old woman by name, Priscilla Tsegah, was stabbed to death by her female friend in a hotel where they lodged for two days.

Her body was found in the hotel room after she had been declared missing by her family with her friends running a social media campaign using her pictures and appealing to the public help find her.

She is said to have been stabbed in her lower abdomen by another lady identified only as Natashia, suspected to be the “lesbian partner’ of the deceased. Natashia took to her heels after the incident and no eye balls have been set on her since.

Natashia is alleged to have murdered her lover after the boyfriend of Priscilla, yet to be identified, went to the Justa Hotel, at New Legon, where the two women were lodging.

According to workers of the hotel, Natashia booked a room in their facility on May 20, 2021 at about 6:43pm and after one hour and 17 minutes, she left and returned with Priscilla, whose identity was not known by the hotel until after her death.

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
