David Moyes has revealed West Ham United were never close to signing Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard.

Jesse Lingard, 28, has been outstanding throughout the second half of his loan spell with West Ham last season. From the performance of scoring 9 goals from only 16 games, the Hammers are very fond of him. And ready to spend 25 million pounds to sign him again. But Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no plans to sell him out of the team. And the player himself wants to return to fight for his place at Old Trafford again.

“Ole made it clear to me in the transfer market that he wanted to keep Lingard,” Moyes said.

“So it made me realize early on that he would stay at Manchester United, it was very clear to me. I had a private conversation with Ole that made me understand everything very well.”

For Jesse Lingard, there is less than a year left on his current contract and United have plans to extend his contract as well. Meanwhile, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo had a huge impact on his playing opportunities. causing many media to speculate that he may not renew his contract with the team And wait for a free move next summer, it is highly likely.
