Tottenham will not be signing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard this summer, according to reports.

There had been rumours over the weekend saying Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was interested in a reunion with the England International, whom he coached while manager of Man United.

It appears Jesse Lingard is not part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term plans at Old Trafford

With Dele Alli, who has not made Tottenham’s past two matchday squads, linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, Lingard was allegedly being eyed as a replacement.

However, The Athletic say there is ‘no chance’ of Lingard joining Tottenham with Mourinho not interested in any potential transfer.

The 27-year-old Lingard scored 13 goals in the 2017/18 campaign when the Portuguese coach was in charge of the Red Devils – his best goal return in a single season.

Lingard’s form has severely dipped since the 2018 World Cup and he is no longer a regular starter in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield.

The United academy graduate even failed to make the bench for Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace.


Despite his lack of first-team involvement, The Sun say the Red Devils are considering handing Lingard a new deal by triggering a one-year extension clause in his contract.

He is out of contract next summer, but taking up the option of a further 12 months could see United sell the player for around £25million.

It is understood Everton and West Ham have expressed an interest in Lingard, who managed to score just one Premier League goal last season.
