Lingard ‘undecided’ over Manchester United future; Gunners goalkeeper linked with exit

Jesse Lingard is the man of the moment on the pitch in the Premier League, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he's "always got a part to play" at Manchester United.

Jesse Lingard 'undecided' between Manchester United and West Ham

West Ham loanee Jesse Lingard is said to be undecided on where his future lies, with the Manchester United player in scintillating form for the Hammers.

Lingard has played his way back into the England squad and a report from Goal suggests that the attacker is not sure yet as to whether he wants to return to Old Trafford, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for his player when talking to the press ahead of United's Europa League clash with Granada:

"Jesse has been brilliant since he left," said Solskjaer.

"Selfishly, we could have kept him because he's always got a part to play. Jesse is a fantastic lad around the place, he's Man United through and through, and never once did he moan or cause me a problem. He just came in and worked really hard and he deserved a chance to play more football, that's why we let him go to West Ham because he deserved a chance.

"We will welcome him back. I hope he'll go to the Euros with his performances now and the confidence he has got, I don't think that's beyond him, and I hope he has a strong finish to the league."

If Lingard does leave the club either on loan again or permanently in the summer, West Ham are 5/2 favourites with Sky Bet to bring him to the London Stadium by September 3rd. Arsenal are second-favourites at 6/1 at time of writing.

Leno 'open to new adventure'

Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno has seen rumours about his future begin to swirl, after he said he was 'open to a new adventure' if he was to be in a position to leave Arsenal.

Leno, 29, has two years left to run on his current Arsenal deal and, while he said talks over a new contract are yet to start, he's not currently concerned about the situation.

"At this moment it's not the time to speak about the future," said Leno, per the Mirror. "I know that I still have two years left and I'm also 29, for a goalkeeper that is not too old.

"I've still some years to go. I'm very happy in the club. I don't know what will come in the future. I'm open for everything: for a new adventure or to stay at Arsenal."

Leno and Arsenal are in action on Thursday night, with the Gunners priced at 8/11 to beat Slavia Prague in 90 minutes with Paddy Power.

Barca confident of Garcia free transfer

Barcelona are reportedly confident that they will be able to sign Manchester City defender Eric Garcia on a free transfer, when his contract at the Etihad expires in the summer.

The 20-year-old centre-back joined City from Barca as a teenager, and his former employers are hoping to bring the Spain international back to Camp Nou, according to a report from Sport.

While the club's latest offer to Garcia includes a lower base salary, Barca are still hoping he will choose to head back to Catalonia in the summer.

In the immediate term, Garcia and Manchester City will face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday evening, and City are 3/4 favourites to win inside 90 minutes with Paddy Power.
