Manchester United star Jesse Lingard will be rewarded with a bumper new contract when returning from World Cup duty with England, according to a report.
Lingard has been a key player in England’s run to the quarter-finals of the competition, most notably bagging a fine individual goal in the 6-1 win over Panama.
The 25-year-old has also done a job when called upon by Jose Mourinho at club level, with the former Leicester City and Birmingham City loanee appearing 48 times in all competitions last season.
The Sun alleges that United now plan to tie Lingard down to another improved agreement to double his present salary, despite only signing a four-year contract worth £75,000 a week in April 2017, as they see him as a probable superstar.
An Old Trafford source is quote by the publication saying: “Jesse has shown that he is a top class performer on and off the pitch.
“He has a fabulous season for the club last year and has taken that form onto the international stage so far. His England showings has been brilliant and the club know he is all set to become a global star if he continues.”
Lingard assisted directly with 5 goals in the Premier League last season while scoring eight of his own from attacking midfield.
