Paul Parker tells ‘Mr Instagram’ to leave Man United amid January transfer links

Published

Paul Parker says ‘Mr Instagram’ Jesse Lingard needs to ‘stop taking pictures and start being a footballer’ and has urged the England international to leave Manchester United during the January transfer window.

Lingard has spent more than two decades at United, making 224 appearances for the Red Devils and helping the club win the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.

But the 29-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and is yet to start a Premier League match this season, with his reduced role leading to speculation he will leave the club in January.

Newcastle United are believed to be in talks to sign Lingard on loan and former United defender Parker says he should move on and try to revive his career at St James’ Park.

Parker told MyBettingSites: ‘I think Jesse Lingard needs to go. He’s almost 30.

‘You can’t just be one of the names at Manchester United and be ‘Mr. Instagram’ around all these big names at a big club.

‘He’s got to go out and prove that he wants to play football and he doesn’t need Manchester United around him. He needs to stop taking pictures and start becoming a footballer.

‘If it means going to Newcastle, they can demand even more from him because he comes from Manchester United, good for him.

‘They’re going to demand more from him because it seems that he wants to be Mr. Social Media and he’s going to have to demand more from himself.’

On Lingard’s potentially joining Newcastle United, Parker added: ‘If it is going to happen, he’s going to be at Newcastle, which has got a big support base.

‘If he goes and does well there, then he’ll be a living legend in Newcastle. He can then do as many Instagrams as he likes in Newcastle, because they’ll accept that if he’s there and does well and gives his hundred percent.

‘That’s what he’s got to do, when he goes to Newcastle, give his hundred percent and his life will be so enjoyable.

‘Even Manchester Utd fans, if he goes and does well for Newcastle, they will be so pleased for him.

‘A lot of them are disappointed that he’s come back to United just to sit on the bench and are questioning him as a footballer. He’s a Mancunian but they just want him to want to play football.’

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Published

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.
