West Ham has made inquiries with representatives of Jesse Lingard after the midfielder ran out of his contract this summer. He was on loan at West Ham at the end of the 2020/21 season while Newcastle wanted to sign the midfielder during the January transfer window. Earlier this month, Ralf Rangnick received criticism from Lingard’s brother for failing to give the midfielder a proper farewell at Old Trafford.

“The nonsense over Jesse Lingard, look, Jesse’s been at the club a long time, done a good job, but I saw Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce not play in their last games and not get a send-off in cup finals,” Gary Neville said after West Ham reignited their interest in Jesse Lingard. “One of them maybe is the greatest captain Manchester United have ever had and another one is one of the greatest and they didn’t get that send-off, a farewell from the fans. I’m not quite sure why Jesse Lingard deserves it. I was thrown away at West Brom in a toilet. At the end of the day, it doesn’t work out, Jesse.”

“A lot of them will leave, their contracts are up, it’s the other ones. Well, you can’t just kick football players out of the club. This idea they think they’ve got a God-given right to get minutes on the pitch the way they’ve played, all of them,” he added. “Not one of them… David de Gea and [Cristiano] Ronaldo have held their own this season, they’ve performed well, and not one of them other than that can have any complaint about whatever happens to them this summer. It’s been a really shocking two or three months and I can’t wait for the season to end. I can’t wait to stop talking about them. Big clear out in the summer.”
