Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is out of contract next summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considering offloading him.
The midfielder has been eyed by a number of Premier League clubs, including Everton, Tottenham and West Ham.
But United are looking to trigger his one-year option to make sure his market value of £25million is kept.
According to SunSport, Old Trafford chiefs are planning to exercise their option within the next few weeks.
The £100,000 a week ace is sweating over his future at Old Trafford, with Solskjaer apparently not having him in his first-team plans this season.
Lingard could be sold before the window closes in early October, if a suitable offer comes in.
But the England ace is determined to fight for his spot, despite being way down the pecking order in midfield with Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Bruno Fernandes among others already in the squad.
