Manchester United midfielder, Jesse Lingard has been told that remaining at Old Trafford this season would mean two steps backwards for him.
Lingard was again left on the bench for what could have been his last Old Trafford match at the club against Brentford on Monday night.
Manchester United honoured the likes of Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, who are both also set to leave the club this summer, given minutes at Old Trafford in the 3-0 win.
But Lingard remained on the bench for the entire duration of the game.
And former Burnley and Queen Park Rangers star, Charlie Austin said staying at Old Trafford would be a backward movement for the England international.
“Staying at Man United, Jesse Lingard has taken two steps back.
“His stock was so high [at West Ham], but it’s not worked out this year,” he told talkSPORT.
