Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that Jesse Lingard has a crucial part to play in the season ahead.
Lingard shone while on loan at West Ham during the second half of last season in January.
But the Englishman is now back at United after the two clubs were unable to agree on a permanent transfer.
Lingard, who was not involved as United beat Leeds United 5-1 on the opening weekend of the season, could be set to stay this summer.
“Don’t forget Jesse Lingard,” Solskjaer told reporters during a news conference regarding his attacking options.
“He has reinvented himself and he has come back the man that we know. With the quality he has, he is going to play a big part. I forgot him when I spoke about goalscorers.
“Of course, there could be more rotation. They will be fresher. You have to have a big and strong squad to be competitive in this league. It’s the best league in the world.
“You have to be lucky with injuries. I am looking forward to working with these boys.”
