Manchester United superstar Jesse Lingard (FA) is expected to come to Korea next week.
Fabrizio Romano, a reporter specializing in the transfer market, said on his social network service (SNS) on the 3rd (Korea time) that Jesse Lingard received an official offer from FC Seoul and will soon come to Korea.
“Lyngaard has received an official proposal from FC Seoul. The contract period is two years, and we have agreed and will prepare for it,” the reporter said, adding, “He has prepared to move to Korea early next week to complete the transfer by visiting the club.”
The reporter personally delivered Lingard’s news through a video on the 2nd. “Lingard has a new chapter ahead of him. As a free agent, he is preparing for a contract with FC Seoul, a Korean club. The contract is close,” he said. “Choi Jung Letter, who signed a two-year contract, came and went, and Lingard is ready to leave England and take on a new challenge in Korea.”
“Lyngaard left England and experienced training with Saudi club Al Etihad. Manager Steven Gerrard decided not to pursue a contract with him. And Seoul made a proposal. And then an agreement was reached,” he concluded.
Romano, who covers virtually all the news in the transfer market, delivered the shocking news of Lingard’s transfer, making his trip to the K-League virtually imminent.
Sky Sports reported on the day, “Lyngaard is on the verge of a ‘surprise transfer’ to Korea. He is about to go to FC Seoul,” adding, “It is understood that he verbally agreed to a contract, including the condition of extending one year in two years.”
He then said, “I will leave the country in a few days to complete the contract,” adding, “It is said that he wanted a new start in a new country.”
The British public broadcaster BBC also reported that Lingard is seriously considering going to FC Seoul, along with a two-plus-year contract. However, unlike Sky Sports, it was not known whether Lingard would accept FC Seoul’s offer at this point.
An official from the Seoul club admitted in a telephone interview with X-Sports News on the 2nd, “We contacted Lingard. It is right that we are negotiating over joining the team.”
Lingard, born in 1992, once played a key role in the Premier League’s prestigious Manchester United. Just looking at his overall appearance record, he has more than 200 games.
Lingard, who joined the Manchester United youth team at the age of seven in 2000, was loaned to Leicester City, Birmingham City, Brighton and Hove Albion and Derby County before expanding his presence at Manchester United, his original team, from the 2015-2016 season.
Lingard, who played in 25 English Premier League games under the guidance of Louis van Gaal in the season, played as the main player, playing more than 20 league games until the 2019-2020 season.
In the 2017-2018 season, he scored 13 goals and 7 assists in 48 official matches, including the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup, as well as 33 league matches, and was at the forefront of Manchester United’s attack led by Jose Mourinho.
In recognition of his performance in Manchester United, he was also selected for the England national team and played in 32 games.
At the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia, he contributed greatly to advancing to the semifinals. He played six of the seven matches that England played, four of which were full-time, and scored one goal and two assists in the process. 월카지노주소
Lingard’s biggest advantage in his heyday was his active activity in the offensive camp.
It was also compared among fans with “Manchester United senior” Park Ji-sung, a Jeonbuk Hyundai technical director who showed similar advantages due to his excellent movement when he did not own the ball.
However, he moved to West Ham United on loan and moved his nest for a while in the 2020-2021 season as his position at Manchester United was greatly reduced. Lingard, who scored nine goals in 16 games for West Ham, seemed to have recovered his skills enough to make the England national team again, but his performance has been quiet since the following season.
