Lingard refuses to be swap in Declan Rice deal

LingardAccording to report United stricker Jesse Lingard has no intention of being used in a part-exchange deal for West Ham United's Declan Rice.

The Englishman reignited his career on a six-month loan stretch at the London Stadium past campaign and finished the 2020-21 Premier League season scoring nine goals and registered five assists from 16 outings.

West Ham are known to be eager to sign the Red Devils man on a permanent basis, and given Man United's alleged interest in Rice, a contract involving the two players moving in opposite directions has understandably been mentioned as West Ham stand fast on their £80m asking price.

However, ESPN reports that the 28-year-old does not want to be utilized in such a proposal, Despite that he helped motivate David Moyes's side to Europa League football last season.
