Despite getting a contract extension in recent months, it seems clear that Lingard is not part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term plans.
At 28, the England international may be wise to consider his options elsewhere and inject some life back into his career.
However, with Premier League footballers getting injured and catching COVID at an alarming rate, Lingard could yet serve a purpose at Old Trafford this season.
talkSPORT’s transfer guru Alex Crook told White and Jordan on talkSPORT: “There’s definite interest In Jesse Lingard from Nice and it’s an interesting option for him in France.

“I think for personal reasons Lingard would be reluctant at this stage to move overseas. But he and Manchester United have got a big decision to make.
“He’s certainly not a regular part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans, but I think managers are a bit reluctant to let players leave at the moment with the fixture list more congested than ever, and they’re aware there could be injuries in their squads.
“Solskjaer’s preference would be to keep Jesse Lingard in the building, and it might just come down to how much the player wants to get out and play.

“I know Sheffield United have been in talks with Manchester United, but Lingard didn’t fancy joining the team bottom of the Premier League.
“He was England’s key man when they got to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 but his career has fallen off a cliff since then. I think he needs to get out and revitalise it.”
