Jessie Lingard will be at the centre of a three way fight in the close season.

According to a report in The Sun the midfielder is wanted by Chelsea and Arsenal as well as Manchester United.

Lindgard is out of contract next summer with talks about a new deal at Old Trafford yet to come up trumps.

With no sign of a breakthrough Chelsea are now on the trail of the 24-year-old who has come through the ranks at United.

Arsenal have been long term admirers of Lingard with decision time looming for his Old Trafford future this summer.

If United can’t agree to a new contract that would put him on a par with the club’s top earners they could be forced to sell the midfielder with two of their title rivals leading the race for his signature.

Since the turn of the year Lingard’s appearances have mainly been restricted to cup competitions.
