West Ham plan bid for Jesse Lingard after Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Manchester United.
According to the Daily star, the England international could follow from the Old Trafford club Ronaldo’s United Arrival.
The 28-year-old spent the second half of the last term on loan with the Hammers, with great success.
David Moyes’ squad appeared to have been sold off earlier in the summer, but with the return of Ronaldo, the London club feel they can still strike a deal.
Meanwhile, Lingard decided to welcome Ronaldo back to United in a unique way by posting retro photos of the time the Portuguese football icon met him and some of the other United Academy players.
In the pictures, Lingard looked like an early 10 academy player, while Ronaldo was approaching 20.
It seemed that the academy players selected to meet the Portuguese football star were the brightest in the academy. One of the photos showed Ronaldo putting his two hands on Lingard.
In the caption, Lingard, who is struggling to settle into the Theater of Dreams, simply wrote: “Welcome home” to Ronaldo.
