NgManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he wants midfielder Jesse Lingard to return “revitalized” after joining Premier League side West Ham.
Solskjaer said so on Friday at his press conference ahead of Man United’s Premier League game against Arsenal on Saturday.
Lingard is set join West Ham on loan for the remainder of the season in a £1.5m deal.
The 28-year-old has not featured for the Red Devils in the Premier League this season, but has managed just three appearances this season all in the league Cup.
“It is likely that Jesse’s loan deal with West Ham will come about,” said Solskjaer.
“We want Jesse to come back revitalized and show at West Ham how good he is as a player.
“He was only unhappy with a few issues. In some periods of time, he had to stay away from us with COVID-19 isolation and close contact.”
Lingard will be joined by Facundo Pellestri who is headed for Spain and Marcos Rojo is expected to sign for Boca Juniors.
Man United are looking to bounce back from the midweek shocking loss to Sheffield when they take on Mikel Arteta’s side on Saturday.
