Two Man Utd stars put exit plans on hold but Jesse Lingard still wants to leave

Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek are reportedly open to remaining at Manchester United despite months of speculation linking them with a move away from Old Trafford.

The unsettled players are pondering whether to delay the decision to move, according to the Daily Mail, while Jesse Lingard still wishes to depart the club even though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left.

Under the Norwegian, several United players grew weary at their lack of game-time, especially as the coach refused to rotate his squad despite the dour displays and results.

But his exit has given players such as Van de Beek, Martial, Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot all hope.

United have decided to place Michael Carrick as caretaker manager while they search for an interim boss to take over until the end of the season, upon which time they will seek someone permanently.

And one of the names reported to be in the running is Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino, who’s interested in succeeding Solskjaer immediately and is the club’s top target.

The quickness of United getting a new manager in will undoubtedly play a part in which players will end up leaving in the January transfer market or not. However, Lingard, who played on loan at West Ham for the second half of last season, is hoping to make the move regardless of who’s in the dugout.

The attacker is out of contract next summer and is thought to be among a group of United players who feel Solskjaer misled them over their playing time. Contract talks between the player and club broke down last month also.

The 28-year-old has made just one Premier League start all season, despite being in glowing form for the Hammers last campaign, and he is hopeful of forging his way into playing for England in next year’s World Cup.
