Man Utd Midfielder Jesse Lingard Signs New Deal at Old Trafford

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has signed a new contract at Old Trafford that could earn him £100,000 a week.

The 24-year-old England international is now committed to the Premier League club until 2021 and there is the option to extend the deal by a further year.

Lingard has made 70 appearances for United, who he joined as a seven-year-old, and won four caps for his country.

“Manchester United has always been a big part of my life,” Lingard told BBC.

“I feel great pride every time I pull the shirt on.”

Lingard holds the rare distinction of scoring in three successive games for his club at Wembley.

After netting the winner in last season’s FA Cup final, Lingard also scored against Leicester in the Community Shield and Southampton as United won the EFL Cup in February.
