Jesse Lingard Set To Join Up With Mino Raiola

It looks like everybody’s favorite Moonwalker will now be teaming up with super-villain / agent Mino Raiola. Raiola has shown his disrespect and contempt for Manchester United in his handling of Paul Pogba’s push to leave the club so this is an ominous sign for Lingard’s future. I for one think his exit is overdue and hopefully this move signals the beginning of the end for the player at Old Trafford.

More from SportBible:

Jesse Lingard has reportedly begun to be represented by super-agent Mino Raiola – with Manchester United reportedly accepting he could leave the club.

Raiola is keen to to work with more English players and the Daily Mail believe 27-year-old Lingard is part of that strategy.

Futhermore, United have accepted Lingard and Raiola’s partnership means the England international could look to leave.

The Italian agent represents some of the biggest names in world football, including Lingard’s teammate Paul Pogba.

Other United transfers such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been brokered by Raiola in the past.

However, Raiola has reportedly angered the Old Trafford hierarchy by attempting to engineer Pogba’s departure over the last few years.

He’s also mooted as a key reason why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side missed out on teenager Erling Haaland, who instead joined Borussia Dortmund.

My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
