Based on what?That is highly hyperbolic.
You're saying that because Lingard has likely overextended his stay and been poor for a while, but he's easily a better footballer than Cleverley. It's not even close.
The hyperbole is on your end. Because Lingard still wears a United shirt. He is demonstrably inadequate at every aspect of the game at this level, much like Cleverley was. But really what we're doing here is trying to split two players who both belong on Watford's bench.
The proof will be in where Lingard ends up. If he stays at United it's because there's not a Prem club even willing to give him a shot, because they recognise what everyone with eyes recognises.
