Man Utd fans have Jesse Lingard transfer plan involving West Ham ace Declan Rice
Manchester United have been urged by their own supporters to attempt a player-plus-cash swap deal with West Ham for Jesse Lingard and Declan Rice.
The England forward has looked back to his best at the London Stadium, and could end up joining on a permanent basis with his position under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in doubt.
Although Champions League qualification is likely to end any chances of Rice leaving, both United and Chelsea have been linked with the 22-year-old in recent seasons.
Fans of the Red Devils have now come up with their own plan, which isn’t likely to go down well with David Moyes as his side push for a top four spot.
One fan wrote: “Can we include Lingard in a swap deal for Declan Rice? They'd want Lingard, we want Rice. Would make it easier for negotiations.”
A second added: “Do we think it would be possible to include lingard in a player swap plus cash for rice?”
A third continued: “Declan Rice as a replacement for Paul Pogba. It will be a good deal though if we can get him, especially doing a swap for Lingard.”
With a fourth concluding: “Lingard can go. He’s not in the plans, I’m sure United will at least attempt to swap him for Rice.”
Moyes said of Rice in January: "No matter who was the manager at Chelsea, or whoever came in, it would have been the same answer.
"I said it right at the start and I'm only repeating myself – Bank of England money would be required, and you might even need to add Bank of Scotland on to that as well because he has been so good."
With Lingard saying of his status at the club this week: “I’m obviously really enjoying my football and I’ve settled in really well and the lads have taken to me really well.

“Playing football makes me happy and when we win and play like we did on Sunday [when I scored in a 2-1 win over Spurs], nothing can top that.
“It’s about doing it consistently and that’s maybe where I’ve struggled before, doing it consistently in games, but I can feel now I’m coming to an age where I can keep that consistency and focus and concentration coming into games and playing games week-in, week-out which I haven’t been used to.”
