Details of the current negotiations between the Hammers and Red Devils have now emerged on social media. A minimal loan fee will have to paid to Manchester United for Lingard as well as the club taking responsibility for his wages.

It has been reported that West Ham are currently offering a loan fee of £1 million for the midfielder. Whereas United are demanding a figure of £1.5 million and that the Hammers pay Lingards £75,000 per week wages until the end of the season. If agreed to Lingard could end up costing the club £3.15 million at the end of the season.

In terms of the footballing world, £3.15 million is not a lot of money. Therefore it is likely that if David Moyes really wants Lingard the club will get him in.
