Jesse Lingard Signs Long, Lucrative Contract Extension With Manchester United



Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard is the answer to a very interesting trivia question. He is both the final goal scorer of the Louis van Gaal era and the first to score in the Jose Mourinho regime. Lingard finds himself in and out of the starting XI for United, but he’s a fairly significant contributor.

The 24-year-old winger has finally seen his contract extension come to fruition. With a year left on his current deal, the club announced his four year extension.

Multiple sources are reporting the new deal will pay him £100,000 a week. That amount seems like a gross overpay to many, but the chatter is justifying the deal as “the English Premium.”

“Manchester United has always been a big part of my life,” Lingard said in a statement.

“I have been with the club since the age of seven and I feel great pride every time I pull the shirt on. To have scored in two cup finals for my boyhood club were immensely proud moments for me and my family.”


“As a team, we have already won a major trophy this season and I look forward to helping us win many more under this great manager. I would like to say a special thank you to the fans for the great support they have always given me and the team.”
