Manchester United outcas Jesse Lingard might be on his way to France after it was reported that his agents are in talks with Nice.
The English International, Lingard, has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes in January 2020 and is seeking regular playing time as he attempts to give England manager Gareth Southgate some headache ahead of the Euros which is scheduled for the summer.
Multiple reports in England suggest that an official bid from Nice is expected next week but United are yet to decide whether to let the player go or not, with the deal expected to be a six months loan.
The 27-year-old who played in the FA Cup win over Watford last weekend, but has not featured in the Premier League in over a year, is under contract at Old Trafford until 2022.
Aside, Nice Premier League side Sheffield United are also interested in the player on a loan deal and Lingard is said to be interested in fighting relegation with Chris Wilder’s side.
