Jesse Lingard could land Man Utd huge £500k cash windfall if he helps steer West Ham to Champions League qualification

MANCHESTER UNITED will land a huge cash windfall if West Ham join them in the top four this season.

The Hammers have had a stunning season and are only six points behind rivals Chelsea with a game in hand.

The England winger has been a big part of that success during a stunning loan spell at the London Stadium since January.

And SunSport understands there’s a clause in his deal which will net United a £500,000 bonus if they secure Champions League football.

The agreement could help West Ham seal a permanent transfer for the 28-year-old, who is valued at around £20m.

His £100,000-a-week wage demands are proving an issue for the Hammers, especially if they don’t get into Europe.

Lingard is happy in London, and would be interested in staying after becoming a fan favourite.

He has scored nine times in 13 Premier League appearances for West Ham since joining in January.

A number of clubs are believed to be watching his progress, along with Arsenal and even Real Madrid linked.


The ex-Leicester loanee has just one-year left on his contract at United, and it is unlikely he will sign fresh terms there.

Meanwhile, Mark Noble revealed to BBC’s The Peter Crouch Podcast who is David Moyes’ favourite.

He said: “Jessie Lingard at the minute, mate. They live in the same apartment block as well. The gaffer loves it as well.”
