Gary Neville has casted doubt over Jesse Lingard's Manchester United after honestly assessing the playmaker.
The 28-year-old has been in tremendous form since joining West Ham to work under David Moyes, who coached him at Old Trafford for a season.
It has seen a complete reversal in fortunes for the Englishman, who was frozen out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
On an almost weekly basis, Lingard has been registering goals and assists and it did not take long for Gareth Southgate to take notice.
Over the international break, the Hammers star was recalled to the England squad and made his first appearance for the Three Lions since June 2019.
Despite barely registering a minute this season at United, Lingard now has six goals and three assists in eight Premier League matches under Moyes.
And Sky Sports pundit and ex-Red Devils star Neville has given his outlook on the midfielder on Monday Night Football on another night of brilliance.
After a goal and assist against Wolves, Neville was asked if he would have Lingard back and replied: “It depends on what grounds.
"If Jesse wants to play, which he does want to play, you can see, then he’s going to need to leave.

“Because he’s not going to play every single week I suspect in a Manchester United team that’s trying to get to second or first in the league.
“But if he’s willing to go back there and compete and be a player that, Daniel James has come in for the last few weeks and he’s out of the team again, be that type of player who’s a bit in and out.
“There’s no doubt he can play for Manchester United but he’d have to be in that role.”
