Moving the Spaniard on would not only garner a respectable fee, but it’d also free up a substantial chunk of the club’s current wage budget.
Lingard maybe even more valuable after his January loan move to West Ham United sparked a career resurgence.
The 28-year-old, today named the Premier League Player of the Month for April, has been in scintillating form in the capital.
Amid being directly involved in 12 goals in 13 appearances for West Ham, scoring nine times and registering three assists, Lingard has also returned to the England squad ahead of EURO 2020 next month.
Together, Lingard and De Gea could potentially be sold for up to £50million, which would put United in a solid financial position.
