He also forced his way back into the England squad - playing in the warm-up games ahead of Euro 2020, although he was not selected for the tournament itself.

Lingard is now back in pre-season training with Manchester United and he featured in their recent warm-up games against QPR and Brentford.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Lingard is in his plans for the upcoming season.

Lingard's United contract runs out next summer and he is valued at about £30m.
