Jesse Lingard has been added to the radars of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter Milan, while the French champions see Jadon Sancho as a possible substitute for Kylian Mbappe. Arsenal has entered the race to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, while Forest Green Rovers are attempting to make history by recruiting a female boss. It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for the Paper Round.
LINGARD IS SOUGHT AFTER BY EUROPE’S FINEST.
Paper Round’s take: There’s no doubt Lingard’s current form is amazing, but Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter…? Is that true? No offence to the gentleman, but it seems to be a little excessive. If he was drawing interest from certain types of clubs, United would almost certainly consider keeping him. Lingard is a fantastic player when he’s on form, but he’s a bit of a streaky player.
He’d be a fantastic signing for West Ham, and he’d still be a decent choice if United wanted to offer him a second chance… but maybe not for a Champions League contender.
