Jesse Lingard could reportedly head through the exit door during the summer transfer window amid interest from top European sides.

The attacker's form has dipped over the past 13 months where he has failed to contribute a single goal or assist in the Premier League.

As a result, he has recently dropped down the selection order under Solskjaer and his prospects of regular gametime are slim for the rest of the season.

According to ESPN, the 27-year-old is already contemplating his options for the summer with AS Roma and Atletico Madrid among the interested sides.

The same outlet claims that United have no plans of extending Lingard's contract for the moment and they could permit his sale at the end of the season.

Lingard's current deal with the Mancunian giants expires in the summer of 2021 but the Red Devils have the option of extending his stay for another 12 months.

Aside from Lingard, the likes of Marcos Rojo, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata could head for the exit door during the summer as the club plan for a mega spending spree.
