Wayne Rooney believes Jesse Lingard can work his way into Manchester United’s starting lineup after his eye-catching loan to West Ham.
Rooney, 35, told Sky Sports: âJesse is a fantastic player. He did a great job when he went to West Ham on loan and that’s sometimes what gets your career going.
âHe went through a tough time and he got away with it.
“And his way out was to lend, to start playing football again and he gave himself a great chance to get back into the Manchester United squad.”
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are playing hard with Manchester United against England defender Kieran Trippier.
The former Tottenham right-back is wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to provide defensive cover at Old Trafford next season.
United are ready to pay around Â£ 18million for the 30-year-old Burnley ex-man, but Atletico boss Diego Simeone is in no rush to sell.
So the Old Trafford outfit looks like it needs to increase its supply if it is to land the Bury-born player.
The Spanish champions are still waiting to find out what Trippier wants to do.
And he may have to force the issue if he is to reclaim his Premier League dream after two years in La Liga.
And finally, United are getting closer to signing Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane.
This is according to the Manchester Evening News, which reports that United are “getting closer every day” to finalizing a deal for Varane.
Discussions have been very productive and the center-back hopes to join the Red Devils this summer.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a better defender to join Harry Maguire at the back.
