Jesse Lingard to Join Adidas?

With Marcus Rashford making the headlines, another Manchester United youngster in Jesse Lingard laced up in an interesting pair of cleats yesterday. A regular of the Nike Magista Opus up until now, Jesse Lingard debuted a pair of non-modified Adidas X 15.1 Primeknit football boots.

Lingard Debuts Adidas X Primeknit Boots

Jesse Lingard laced up in the Primeknit boots by Adidas for the very first time yesterday.

Jesse Lingard has been wearing Nike boots, first the CTR360 and later the Magista Opus, ever since making his first-team debut during the 2013 tour of Asia. He broke into the Manchester United first team last fall and even made his full international debut against France in November, making him a candidate for the England Euro squad.

As it's still early in the year, it appears likely that Lingard's contract with Nike ended on December 31, while the use of regular branded Adidas boots suggests that the Manchester United winger already signed for the three-stripes brand, or is very close to.
