Ralf Rangnick confirms Man Utd blocked Jesse Lingard exit after Mason Greenwood's arrest

But reports indicated that he wanted to stay and fight for his place, and Rangnick insists that attitude hadn’t changed into the New Year.

Lingard only informed Rangnick of his desire to leave United in the final few days of the transfer window.

“Three weeks ago, Jesse didn’t want to leave, then he changed his mind,” Rangnick added.

“I had a chat with him 10 days ago and I could fully understand why he wanted to leave, to get game time for his future and the World Cup.

“I told him if he finds a club and the club find a solution with our club, I would allow him to leave, then with all the developments, things changed.
