Lingard did not travel with United to Leeds’ matchday squad on Saturday due to his positive COVID-19 test. He was not named on the substitutes bench.
After a successful loan spell with West Ham last season, the midfielder is being linked to a move to West Ham.
Lingard was frustrated by the start of 2020-21’s campaign and decided to look for a temporary solution. He joined West Ham in January.
In 16 matches, Lingard scored 9 goals and contributed 5 assists as West Ham reached the Europa League. Boss David Moyes confirmed that Lingard was still interested in the club.
Perhaps because of United’s PS30m valuation for the academy star, a transfer did not occur.
Old Trafford could lower their net spending by selling Lingard in the summer to allow them to sign more players.
