Man United were reluctant to include an option to buy when they agreed to loan out Jesse Lingard to West Ham United, according to The Athletic UK. Lingard had a maiden start of life at London by bagging a brace yesterday.
On December 19 2019, six days after Solskjær and Ed Woodward's trip to Austria to try and convince Erling Braut Haaland to join United, a recruitment meeting was called. Everyone decided to bring forward summer plans to sign an attacking midfielder, and that's how United ended up signing Bruno Fernandes.
Jesse Lingard is the sixth different player to score for both West Ham and Manchester United in the Premier League (others being Rio Ferdinand, Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick, Carlos Tevez and Javier Hernandez). Based on Opta stats.
Jesse Lingard himself pushed for West Ham move and Moyes made it clear to West Ham that he wanted him. The loan fee is £1.5m with a further £500k depending on where they finish in league and are covering his wages of just over £90k-a-week.
