Jesse Lingard has yet to be persuaded to leave Manchester United despite his representatives holding initial talks with several clubs in England and Europe.

United are yet to receive any official offers for Lingard, 27, who has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford, with the club holding an option of a further year.

Lingard, who made his first start of the season in United's 3-0 third-round Carabao Cup win against Luton on Tuesday, is one of a number of first-team players that the club are struggling to offload this transfer window.

The England international impressed United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 3-0 third-round Carabao Cup victory at Luton on Tuesday.

However, United cannot guarantee Lingard a starting place and it is thought a decision on his future will be driven by the player himself.

Lingard, who came through the United academy, scored four goals in 40 appearances across all competitions for United last season but has not played for his country since England played in the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2019.
