United plan contract talks with key duo

Manchester United are reportedly keen on sorting out new contracts for Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira ahead of next season.

Both players were involved during different stages of the previous campaign and it appears that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to extend their stays for the long-term.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils boss is keen on rebuilding his team during the ongoing transfer window but there also remains the focus on committing some of the existing players to long-term deals.

It is added that Lingard and Pereira are among the players under the radar and the club are likely to hold negotiations with the representatives of both players regarding fresh deals.

Lingard, who has two years remaining on his contract, could not produce his best showing last term due to regular injury concerns, but he has still been a regular when fit.

On the contrary, Pereira only became a regular under Ole during the backend of the season but he seems to have done enough to convince the club to hold contract talks. His current deal expires at the end of next term.
