Manchester United have confirmed that their midfielder Jesse Lingard has signed new deal with the club. The new contract is for four years with an option to extend further.
The news has been confirmed on Thursday afternoon. Lingard’s contract will see his wages almost trebled at £100,000 as the consequences of the new deal.
The 24 years old joined United academy back when he was seven years old and he was awarded with his first professional contract back in 2011.
He said: “Manchester United has always been a big part of my life. I have been with the club since the age of seven and I feel great pride every time I pull the shirt on.
“To have scored in two cup finals for my boyhood club were immensely proud moments for me and my family. As a team, we have already won a major trophy this season and I look forward to helping us win many more under this great manager.
“I would like to say a special thank you to the fans for the great support they have always given me and the team.”
