Lingard available for £20m

Manchester United have reportedly slashed their valuation for Jesse Lingard ahead of the summer transfer deadline.

The England international was out-of-favour with the Red Devils last year, and he was loaned out to West Ham United in January.

The move proved a blessing in disguise. The attacker finished his temporary stint with nine goals and five assists from 16 games.

It is widely known that the Hammers would like to re-sign him, but they were recently put off by the £30m price tag set by United.

According to The Telegraph, the Red Devils have now slashed the asking price to £20m in order to invite bids for the forward.

The Hammers are still interested in his services, and they could make a late attempt to re-sign him if personal terms are agreed.

Lingard currently earns around £70,000-a-week at Old Trafford, and he is reportedly eyeing £100,000-a-week at his next club.

The Hammers are reluctant to offer any raise on his previous wages. That could prove a stumbling block towards a potential deal.
