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.
