MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly ready to sell Jesse Lingard ‘at the right price’ with the star ‘tempted by the big offer’ from Newcastle.

The Magpies have already secured Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid and Chris Wood from Burnley in the January window.


Eddie Howe is keen to bolster his squad in a bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.

With the backing of new owners – the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund – money is no object for the North East outfit.

We reported yesterday that Newcastle are prepared to pay all of Lingard's £100,000-a-week wages in order to bring him to the club until the end of the campaign.

Now Sky Sports journalist Pete Graves says a permanent deal ‘is possible’ and that the player is interested in joining the relegation strugglers for a ‘big offer’ and that the ‘right price’ would convince United to sell.

The England international's contract expires at Old Trafford in the summer – meaning this is likely to be the last opportunity for Man Utd to receive some kind of financial remuneration for the player.

And given his lack of game time, Ralf Rangnick and the United board may feel it suits them to offload Lingard now.

He has managed just 88 minutes off the bench in the league and not received any more opportunities since Ralf Rangnick replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Yet he has still scored twice and shown his quality with the few appearances he has made.

That followed on from his successful loan spell at West Ham last term, with David Moyes’ Hammers still keen on the attacker.
