Manchester United to sell attacking duo?


Jesse Lingard news

Pereira and Lingard to leave United?

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to part ways with both Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira when the transfer window reopens.

The attacking duo have struggled to impress during the course of the current campaign and they were recently excluded from the Manchester derby.

The winter arrival of Bruno Fernandes has pushed the pair down the pecking order at Old Trafford and The Sun reports that they could leave the club this summer with more signings expected.

Lingard has failed to contribute a goal or an assist in the Premier League over the past 15 months and he has been the subject of immense criticism from a section of the United fans.

Pereira, on the other hand, have made a few goalscoring contributions but he has been hugely disappointing with his distribution especially in the final third of the field.

Aston Villa's Jack Grealish is one of the prime targets for United this summer and the club could recoup a major part of the player's transfer fee by selling Lingard and Pereira.
