Manchester United are expected to welcome back the trio of Jesse Lingard, Diogo Dalot and Andreas Perreira in the summer due to their unrealistic expectations.
Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Diogo Dalot have all gone out on loan this season, to West Ham, Lazio and AC Milan, respectively.
According to Eurosport, the club is keen to offload the three players who are being considered surplus to requirements but the team’s expectations in securing permanent moves for the players is said to be a stumbling block in proposed moves.
“West Ham were surprised when United turned their nose up at a potential permanent deal for him (Lingard) in January. On top of the £1.5million loan fee, they were willing to include a buyout clause for him to join permanently in a £15m move. United said no. United … now will be looking for upwards of £20m if he leaves in the summer,” a statement noted from the tabloid.
It’s a similar story at Lazio with Andreas Pereira with Citta Celeste via Sport Witness claiming that it is 'very difficult to think’ that the Rome club will make the deal permanent at the end of the season due to United’s €25 million asking price and his underwhelming performances.
Dalot, who is reportedly eligible to play against United in the Europa League round of 16, had been reported to be impressing Milan but a disastrous performance against Spezia Calcio has given Paulo Maldini and co. second thoughts. Gazzetta dello Sport are now reporting that Fikayo Tomori is the only loanee that the Rossoneri are intending to make permanent.
