Jesse Lingard’s move to Newcastle looks dead in the water over Manchester United’s demands for a £12million survival bonus.

After a day of deadlock and rapidly deteriorating relations between United and the Lingard camp, Newcastle have all but given up hopes of reviving the deal.

The club’s new Saudi owners are known to have waived the bonus – payable if they stay in the Premier League – in addition to a £2.5 million loan and the player’s £100,000 a week wages.

The potential cost of loaning Lingard for the final four months of his United contract would be £16.5million, the equivalent of £1million a week, making it one of the most expensive loan deals in history.

United believe this is a fair price for an experienced England international and say the bonus is reasonable given the financial impact of relegation from the top flight.

Club sources also claim Lingard could have made a permanent transfer this month, but is looking to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season with a more lucrative free transfer.

The 29-year-old, on the other hand, is angry and frustrated with the club’s stance after United have already turned down loan offers from Tottenham and West Ham because they are seen as rivals in the top four. Leicester, Everton and Burnley have also expressed interest.

Lingard believes he will be punished for refusing to sign a new contract at Old Trafford, or agreeing to a permanent transfer that would guarantee United a fee. He also feels disappointed that he has only made two starts this season after being promised opportunities in the summer by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick spoke by phone to Lingard, who is currently in Dubai, on Tuesday and gave him the green light to leave, the German telling him he is not part of his plans.

A source close to the player said: “There’s no point in Jesse going to work now knowing he won’t be performing.”

Clearly Lingard was surprised to receive a call from a United manager asking him where his ‘head was’, while it is well known that he wants to make a fresh start at another club after a successful loan from last year. West Ham.

He is now stuck at United for the rest of the season with little prospect of playing.
