Jesse Lingard has signed a new contract with Manchester United that could earn him £100,000 a week

The 24-year-old England international has now committed to the Premier League club until 2021 with the option to extend the deal by a further year.

Since joining United aged seven, Lingard has made 70 appearances for the Reds and won four caps for his country.

Lingard holds the rare distinction of scoring in three successive games for his club at Wembley.

After netting the winner in last season’s FA Cup final, Lingard also scored against Leicester in the Community Shield and Southampton as United won the EFL Cup in February.

Lingard had spells on loan at Leicester, Birmingham and Brighton before he was given his first-team debut by Louis van Gaal against Swansea in the opening game of the 2014-15 season.

This season he has played 29 times, scoring five goals.
