Report: Jesse Lingard Currently Weighing Up Shock Big Money Move
By Gary Connaughton

Midway through July, Jesse Lingard seems no closer to finding himself a new club.

Towards the end of last season, it was clear that he did not have a future at Manchester United. His playing time over the second half of the season was severely limited, with the player annoyed that he wasn't given the opportunity to say goodbye to the club's supporters.

The club seemed to be glad to see the back of him. It was heavily hinted that Lingard was one of the main source of leaks in the dressing room, something that was a big problem at Old Trafford in the last campaign.

A number of Premier League clubs have been heavily linked with a move for him this summer, although another option has now emerged.

Jesse Lingard weighing up move to Saudi Arabia

The Athletic are reporting that Jesse Lingard is currently considering a move from Saudi Arabia, with an annual salary of around £10million apparently on offer from a side the Middle Eastern country.

It is suggested that the player would prefer to stay in England, with West Ham and Everton thought to have also made offers to the player. However, it is unlikely that either of those clubs would match the wages on offer in Asia.

Saudi Arabian clubs have signed some well known players in the recent past, with Ever Banega and former United striker Odion Ighalo two of the most well-known players currently in the league. It is rumoured that Cristiano Ronaldo has also been offered a big money contract by a club from the country, although that looks set to be rejected.

Such a move would all but end Lingard's England career, with the 29-year old featuring on a number of occasions during the recent World Cup qualifying campaign.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up, although a move to Saudi Arabia would certainly tell you where the player's priorities lie moving forward.
