Man Utd ready to sell Lingard and Andreas Pereira to make way for Van de Beek

Manchester United are looking to sell Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira as they look to clear up space at Old Trafford.


It comes as the Red Devils close in on the signing of Ajax star Donny van de Beek who is set to complete a £40m deal to join the club.

The Dutch midfielder who would be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing of the summer, is understood to have agreed personal terms over a five-year deal at United.Solskjaer is also hoping to bring in further recruits including a centre-half, someone for the right-wing and another forward before the transfer window closes on October 5.

And as Solskjaer looks to make room, it is no surprise that both Lingard and Pereira are expected to leave, as they have fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and deemed surplus to requirements.

United are well covered in the middle of the park with Van de Beek potentially joining Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Juan Mata for places.Last season was a tough campaign for Lingard, who has had to balance off-field issues with trying to win his place back in a flourishing team.

And both the 27-year-old and Pereira have been on the fringes of the first team since the emergence of Mason Greenwood and impressive form of January signing Fernandes.

It would end Lingard’s 20-year partnership with United having joined the club when he was just seven, but the Englishman has not started a Premier League game for the club since New Years’ Day.

Pereira joined the club in 2011 at the age of 15 but has not started for the club since a 1-1 draw with Club Brugge in the Europa League back in February.

Akwa Ibom Youths under the auspices of Young Democratic Movement (YDM), and South South Youth Assembly have given the Federal Government seven days ultimatum to take over the gold in Zamfara state currently controlled by the state government.

Leader of Young Democratic Movement, Kuseme Idiong and Speaker, South South Youth Assembly, Comrade Victor Thompson stated that proceeds from the sale of Zamfara gold should be shared among all the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), as is done with the oil proceeds from the Niger Delta.


They noted that the Constitution of Nigeria stipulates that mines and minerals including oil fields, oil mining, geological surveys and natural gas in states are exclusively under the control of the Federal Government, and wondered why the FG has not taken over the gold in Zamfara.

They described the action of Zamfara state governor as an act of lawlessness and impunity, and called on the Executive and Legislative arm of government to rise up against it.

They stated that failure of the FG to take over the mineral resources found in Zamfara state would force them to embark on a nationwide protest and call out youths in the country to join.

The groups further demanded an upward review of the derivation funds paid to Niger Delta states saying oil-producing states were not actually paid the 13 percent.

“That both the Executive and the Legislative arm of the Federal Government should rise against this act of lawlessness and impunity from the perpetrators of the sale of Zamfara Gold.Details of both past and present gold or other mineral sales should be made public and proceeds should be shared among all the states as in the case of Oil derivatives from the Niger Delta region.

“The Federal Executive Council and the National Assembly should revisit the derivative funds formula for oil-rich Niger Delta states as oil-producing states are fed below the 13% derivation.

“Failure to upwardly review the derivative funds formula for oil-rich Niger Delta states, the Federal Government must allow Niger Delta to directly sell her oil just as the recent case of Zamfara gold bar.

“We give the Federal Government up till Saturday, October 24, 2020 to give a robust and satisfactory response to our demands else the Youths of Niger Delta shall on Tuesday, October 26, 2020 embark on a Nationwide protest drawing the attention of the international community to this terrible situation. We must warn that we will not leave the streets until our demands are met,” the group stated.
