Barely playing at Manchester United these days, Jesse Lingard’s agent, Mino Raiola, is looking at finding a way out for his client.

Offering him around Europe, the representative has yet to encounter the ideal landing spot, but one thing is certain: he won’t be joining Nice

Already dismissed by the Ligue 1 club’s president last week, the rumour sending the Manchester United forward is simply a ‘fake file’.

This is according to someone ‘close’ to said file, who spoke to RMC Sport, with the French outlet publishing the news on their website.

The 28-year-old has yet to feature under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Premier League, donning his childhood club’s shirt just three times this season (twice in the EFL Cup and once in the FA Cup).

With Bruno Fernandes in the form of his life and Manchester United finally finding a good run of results as they sit top of England’s top-tier, the future looks bleak for Lingard, meaning an exit is the likeliest outcome this January.

It just won’t be to Nice.
