Nice interested in Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard

Foot Mercato report this afternoon that Nice are interested in signing Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard, with manager Christophe Galtier particularly interested in bringing him in.

The 29-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham, has yet to start a Premier League game this season for the Red Devils.

While Newcastle and West Ham, as well as several Spanish clubs, had been interested in him, Les Aiglons now appear to have entered the race to sign the England international.

Nice had already been linked to Lingard last year, with the midfielder’s contract expiring at the end of this season. However, a deal appears financially difficult for a club in Ligue 1 – although not necessarily impossible.
