Jesse Lingard, 32, is mobbed by fans as he nears the gate.
Jesse Lingard was scheduled to enter South Korea via Incheon International Airport on May 5 on a flight scheduled to land at 4 p.m. It is currently about 30 minutes late. Since 3pm, with about two hours to go until his arrival time, fans have been arriving at Incheon International Airport in droves, and by 4pm, when he was due to land, the gate was packed with fans.
The purpose of Lingard’s arrival is to join FC Seoul.
“Former Manchester United and England national team midfielder Lingard is seriously considering an offer from FC Seoul,” said Simon Stone, a BBC reporter dedicated to Manchester United.
“Lingard’s next stop is South Korea’s FC Seoul,” 온라인카지노 reported Fabrizio Romano of Sky Sports and other outlets, “and he is close to signing.”
Surprisingly, Lingard has received offers from a total of 26 teams, including Seoul.
According to Sky Sports, Lingard rejected all of them, including UEFA Champions League qualifiers SS Lazio in Italy.
After finding himself out of favor at Manchester United in the 2019-2020 season, Lingard went on loan to West Ham United in the 2020-2021 winter transfer window.
It was a stroke of luck. During his short six-month loan spell, Lindegaard scored nine goals and provided five assists in 16 league games in a West Ham shirt. He was virtually the team’s “ace in the hole” and led West Ham to the UEFA Europa League.
A confident Lingard returned to United at the end of his loan, but once again, Mourinho turned him down. He eventually moved to Nottingham Forest in July 2022.
Lindegaard’s downward spiral continued. Despite being the highest paid player in the team, his on-field presence was minimal.
Eventually, he was released by Nottingham in June 2023 and became a free agent.
Lingard was reportedly training with Inter Miami in August last year and was later linked with a move to West Ham. The move never materialized. In September, it was announced that he was training with Al Etihad in the Saudi Arabian Professional League, and a move seemed to be in the works.
After being linked with the likes of FC Barcelona and Everton, his next destination is now FC Seoul, as reported by Man Utd transfer market insider Simon Stone.
The news that a player who is still in his prime and was once a regular starter for United is heading to the K League is shocking to many soccer fans, 실시간 바카라사이트 both in Korea and abroad. Apart from the difference in quality of the league, there are many questions about how he resolved the salary issue and why he chose Seoul after turning down the Saudi League.
Meanwhile, Lingard, who will be stepping on Korean soil in a short while, will undergo a medical with FC Seoul and, if all goes well, will travel to Kagoshima, Japan, to participate in the team’s training camp.
