Jesse Lingard, a talented former Manchester United midfielder, recently revealed some interesting information about his decision to join Nottingham Forest
The 29-year-old midfielder has packed his bags to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer this summer, and he has drawn interest from clubs both inside and outside the Premier League. Lingard, on the other hand, followed his heart when he chose to play for Nottingham Forest.
“I could have gone abroad with a lot of money, but no, I want to stay in the Premier League to fight,” the 29-year-old midfielder said in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live. They (Forest) wanted to approach me and rush me to the club. The team’s president was very nice to me, and they were very serious about getting me.
Furthermore, the former Manchester United midfielder revealed that it was ‘love’ that brought him to Nottingham Forest: “Of course, if I see sincerity, I will say yes, but it must be an agreement. suitable for my family and me I can see the project they’re working on, and it’ll look great this season. When I decided to join this team, I had a good feeling “Lingard added.
Jesse Lingard was once the hope of both Manchester United and England. This talented midfielder has the ability to play melancholy and is regarded as one of the best prodigies of the famous Carrington training academy; even the Red Devils’ ardent fans refer to him as a “monster.” His career has had many ups and downs; his talent is top-notch, and his personal technique is excellent, but his performance is erratic, and he will forever be associated with the label of “young talent never growing up.”
Jesse Lingard has completed a medical examination and signed a one-year contract with the Premier League’s rookie team. According to reports, the midfielder earns up to £200,000 per week, the highest at Nottingham Forest.
Previously, Lingard’s MU teammate and goalkeeper Dean Henderson moved to Forest to play on loan. The Premier League’s newcomer hopes that Lingard and Dean Henderson’s extensive experience in the English top flight will help this team adjust to the new playing environment.
There was a bidding war for Lingard’s services this summer after he became a free agent, but Forest emerged as the surprise winner. Lingard agreed to a one-year deal at the City Ground, with the newly promoted club paying him £150,000 per week.
Manchester United will see many midfield innovations in the coming season when veteran faces like Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard are no longer wearing the Red Devils shirt.
It’s especially unfortunate to bring up the case of Jesse Lingard, who was a mature face from the club’s training camp who had shining moments with the Old Trafford team but was not used after that. After the contract expired, he was forced to leave.
