West Ham is still hoping they COULD secure another loan deal for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard before TOMORROW when the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo threatens his playing time.
- David Moyes wants Jesse Lingard back after impressive loan last season
- Lingard has one year left on his contract and Manchester United will have to renew.
- West Ham signs Kurt Zuma for £ 30m and looking to add Nikola Vlasic
- United is reviewing loan offers for Daniel James by Tuesday deadline
Cristiano RonaldoThe arrival at Old Trafford has put additional pressure on United’s seats, and Lingard understands that regular playing time will be limited.
West Ham moves forward with a £ 25m deal for CSKA Nikola Vlašić and, following the addition of Kurt Zuma from Chelsea for £ 30m this will be their transfer budget.

However, they are currently investigating whether Lingard’s move can be revived.
Ideally, it would have been another loan, but the 28-year-old has only one year left on his contract. United will need to renew their contract before agreeing to another temporary move to protect their asset.
Manager David Moyes has made it clear to Lingard and West Ham that he wants the England player back and hopes that this will signal the rest of his team that he is ambitious for his team.

Hammers has already signed with Kurt Zuma (left) and wants to add Nikola Vlašić (right).
Moyes has taken more control of the West Ham contracts this summer and believes he is adding good characters and qualities to Zuma and Vlasic.
If he can attract Lingard and another defensive loan, it will give him a team capable of repeating last year’s sixth Premier League finish.
Manchester United understand Lingard’s position following Ronaldo’s arrival and are considering loan offers to striker Daniel James.
However, Amad Diallo’s loan to Feyenoord was canceled after he suffered a muscle injury in training.
Ronaldo received treatment over the weekend and signed a two-year contract with an option for a third year. He should play against Newcastle United for the first time on September 11, if all goes according to plan.
