Manchester United great Roy Keane has questioned Jesse Lingard’s future at Old Trafford.
Referring to his England chances, Keane said Lingard currently finds himself in a difficult position with opportunities at Old Trafford likely to be limited. He was asked if Lingard is in “no man’s land” at his club.
“That’s the exactly the words I would use,” Keane told ITV Sport. “It’s been difficult, you thought he’d get a move.
“But he’s got to get his head down at Man United. Gareth [Southgate] obviously likes him, he’s had him in the squad a couple of times.

“It’s another opportunity for Jesse to get 90 minutes under his belt and maybe score a goal because he’s a good player, he just needs to play regularly.”
According to 90Min, Lingard will revisit the possibility of a loan or permanent departure in the winter, if he is not playing regularly.
