Jesse Lingard has reportedly become a transfer target for AC Milan and Barcelona, with his Manchester United deal expiring at the end of the current campaign.

The 28-year-old star is into the final year of his existing contract at Old Trafford and is yet to pen a new one, despite the Red Devils offering him improved terms.

The Englishman has rejected the proposal because he is concerned over game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and doesn’t feel like guarantees have been properly given.

He spent the second half of last term on loan at West Ham because he was not involved at Old Trafford, and in spite of performing brilliantly for the Irons, is still struggling to get into the starting eleven under Solskjaer.

Jesse has made just three Premier League appearances thus far this season, all from the bench, and despite netting in two of those outings is still not expected to play week in, week out.

His stance on a fresh contract has alerted plenty of attention, with the Hammers and newly-monied Newcastle United likely to be keen, while there is attention coming from a pair of UCL giants.

ESPN state that both Blaugrana and I Rossoneri would be keen to pick up Lingard for free next summer when his current contract comes to an end.
