Jessie Lingard seems set to become the latest Englishman to make the move over to Serie A, with Milan, Juventus and Roma all keen to pick him up in the summer.

The 29-year-old English forward is set to leave Manchester United at the end of this season when his contract expires, meaning he’ll be able to join a new club on a free transfer. West Ham and Newcastle United are both interested in signing him, but a future in Italy seems more likely.

As reported by the Mirror, Lingard is keen on the idea of moving to Italy after seeing Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham’s growth in Serie A. Roma, Milan and Juventus are all interested in picking up the Englishman on a free transfer and could battle it out for his signature in the summer.

The 29-year-old Lingard has made 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 392 minutes. In that time, he’s scored two goals and provided one assist.

13 thought on “Lingard attracts attention of Milan, Juve and Roma”
  1. Italy will NEVER learn. You just miss out on two world cups and instead of promoting young Italian players they sign 29, 30, 31 year old foreign players who can’t cut it in the leagues they are in. It only strengthens those leagues by opening up space for young players in their league.

  2. Until the government or LegaCalcio steps in, this will continue to happen.

    Do not leave it up to the clubs to bring along Italian players.

  3. Hmmmm… pretty sure that EU rules on would stop them “stepping in”. Already pretty strict rules regarding non EU nationals.
    Italy still produces good defenders, midfielders even some forwards, just not strikers. That has been the case for a long time, the last time Italy won the WC in 2006, Luca Toni was the centre forward.

  4. What we saw of him at west ham clearly showed a player who when trusted can actually deliver! But it seems he decided to take money and sitting on the bench over continuing somewhere else as a protagonist! There are question marks over all of those players at man utd when it comes to dedication and professionalism on and off the pitch! I don’t see him as a Milan player at all!

  5. If he can go for free PhD Max will be interested for sure especially if they can give him 400K a week.

  6. More made up garbage, but he’d be seen as a coup by many of the clowns running Serie A.

    If guys like this keep arriving – and they will, because Serie A can’t seem to fix itself – then we can forget about this league being any serious threat in Europe for a long, long time.

  7. Guys Jesse is very good Attacking Midfielder who ever sign him will befit with his creative and also Goals , He is not under ratted midfielder frankly speaking , It is only the Managers man utd pick they do not prefer him but I see him having bright future atleast 2-3 years in Italy Top flight no doubt

  8. He was trash years ago. What’s the difference now? A couple of successes from EPL doesn’t mean Serie A has to accept more.
