According to SempreMilan via Italian news outlet CalcioMercato, out-of-favour Manchester United star Jesse Lingard is amongst the players on AC Milan’s shortlist as they are planning a move for a winger this summer.
Report from the Italian news outlet via casinoclic casino claimed Lingard’s representative, super-agent Mino Raiola, has held talks with Milan over a possible switch for Englishman, but Lingard is not considering to be the San Siro outfit’s top target.
The report went further that his current contract with the Red Devils expires next summer, with Man United valuing the attacking midfielder at €15m. Whilst he may not be the prime target for Stefano Pioli’s side, Lingard may just be the most realistic signing for the Serie A side.
Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa is also eyed, but the Serie A’s side €70m asking price would be needed to sign him, whilst Werder Bremen inside forward Milot Rashica is reportedly valued at around €30m.

According to the Times (subscription required), Lingard is ‘likely’ to head for the exit door this summer after a disappointing couple of seasons.
Lingard has dropped down the side’s pecking order after a rough patch which began shortly after the 2018 World Cup, whilst the ace is often ridiculed for his woes – compassion is needed as the Times add that the United academy graduate has dealt with personal struggles during this period.
Lingard took care and homeschooled his younger siblings when his mother fell ill, the star has also become a father for the first time during this period, it hasn’t been easy for the ace.
Yes Lingard’s performances haven’t been amazing but he deserves credit and respect for continuing to keep himself available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his boyhood club during such tough times.
Lingard has only started 20 of his 39 appearances this season, contributing four goals and two assists – most of which have come against respectably much weaker opposition in cup competitions.
