The truth: Spurs eye Lingard …
As several reliable sources have reported, Tottenham have joined the race to sign the Manchester United man with his contract which will expire in 2022 as it stands.

The Latest: Galetti makes Lingard claim to Spurs …
According to its updateSpurs have made contact to request information alongside rivals West Ham and Newcastle in the race for his signing.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, could even let him leave Old Trafford for less than £ 10million this month, as United are “asking” for around “€ 10-15million” (£ 8.4million sterling to £ 12.5 million).
The verdict: negotiate?
Hailing from the country, proven in the Premier League and internationally – signing Lingard this month for around £ 8.4million could prove to be a masterstroke from sporting director Fabio Paratici.
If they manage to strike a deal or wait until summer, the 29-year-old could finally fill the void left by former fan favorite Christian Eriksen in a creative midfielder role.
Scoring nine goals and assisting four more during his mid-season loan at West Ham in 2021, he was hailed as ‘phenomenal’ and the best elite player in form at the time (Adrian Durham, talkSPORT) .
Nurturing that Lingard ability could certainly boost Tottenham and Conte’s rebuilding in N17.
