David Moyes is keen to sign Lingard, although Nottingham Forest are also interested
Lingard, who can play as a winger or attacking midfielder, struggled to get regular playing time at United last season but there is no lack of interest in him and Nottingham Forest are also watching the situation.
Other clubs such as Everton, Leicester, Newcastle and Tottenham are pursuing Lingard. In addition, MLS clubs and a team in Saudi Arabia are also interested.
Lingard is demanding wages of £180,000 a week, meaning the situation has dragged on for some time.

However, the 29-year-old is close to making a decision on his future with West Ham leading the race.
Lingard played 232 times for Manchester United, scoring 35 goals.
West Ham have already signed Nayef Aguerd from Rennes, while Alphonse Areola has made his loan move from Paris Saint-Germain permanent.
The Hammers are also looking to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea.
