Manchester United icon urges attacker ‘to consider’ summer transfer move to Tottenham
Manchester United star Jesse Lingard should consider a potential move to Tottenham Hotspur, claims Andy Cole.
It is no secret that Lingard has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and there has been some speculation in the media that Tottenham are interested in getting a deal done.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly a massive fan of Lingard and is reportedly ready to pay some serious money in order to add a bit more depth to his squad, who face alot of games this season because of their participation in the Europa League.
The England international reminded Solskjaer of his undoubted qualities on Tuesday night with a strong showing against Luton in the Carabao Cup, and with the Tottenham boss reportedly keen on a reunion in north London, Cole suggested a change in scenery could be beneficial for the attacking midfielder.
“I think everyone has a role to play, but it’s to what extent you want to play that role,” Cole told talkSPORT.com.
“I’m sure he wants to be a starter and I think Jesse would be the first one to admit it’s going to be difficult to start week, week out.
“When you’re at that age, you have to turn around to yourself and ask ‘Do you want to be coming off the bench or do you want to be starting week in, week out?’
“So I think if Jesse wants to start or Manchester United are consider selling him, or whatever the situation is, the two parties will no doubt make a decision on it.”
Lingard is a player that has been loyal to United and is a very good option to have in the squad, but would he be the right kind of signing for Tottenham?
