PREMIER - Lingard's asking price reduced to 15m pounds
Jesse Lingard's price tag has reportedly been reduced to £15 million by Manchester United, as he continues to refuse to sign a new contract with the club.
United have been in frequent contact with the 28-year-old, according to The Sun, and are said to have offered him a pay rise of £135,000 per week.
Despite the fact that the Academy graduate is willing to extending his stay at Old Trafford, he will want indications of regular first-team play before committing his future to the club.
Despite being said to be in Reds manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans for the season, Lingard's position in the current campaign has been reduced to that of a bit-part player once again.
In order to secure his position in Gareth Southgate's England team – should the Three Lions qualify for next summer's World Cup in Qatar - the attacker recently stated that he needed consistent playing time.
