Jesse Lingard has recapitulated his desire for a regular time after shining with West Ham in the second half of last season.
Lingard signed for West Ham from United on loan in January in search of playtime and enjoyed his stay with the Hammers, scoring nine goals while providing four assists. The England international says he wants to ensure he gets minutes on the pitch next season, whether he remains at United or leaves.
"Regular football is the most important thing for me," the player marker told Sky Sports.
"After going on loan and getting a good run in the team, you started to see the real me, with the goals and the assists. I’ve never doubted my ability, I’ve always believed in myself."
Towards the end of the season, the north London side was believed to be interested in signing the 28-year-old but were put off by United’s £40million valuation of the player.
