Jesse Lingard has become an important player for Manchester United since bursting onto the scene at Old Trafford in the 2015-16 season.

A product of the club's youth system, the midfielder has held his own to cement a place in the Red Devils first team, seeing off competition from the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Memphis Depay among others.

The 2017-18 season was his best ever personal campaign as he scored eight Premier League goals, helping the club to a second-place finish and he will certainly hope to build on that foundation.

Internationally, the 25-year-old has also emerged as one of the key players for Gareth Southgate's England, playing an important role in their 2018 World Cup campaign.

But how much is Lingard worth? Goal takes a look at the Man United star's earnings, as well as his business interests and more.

What is Jesse Lingard's net worth?

Given his relative youth and the fact that he has only been a top earner at Man United for the guts of a year, Lingard is not likely to have amassed substantial riches.

However his lucrative new contract is bound to give the midfielder a boost in the coming years, particularly as he invests in his JLINGZ fashion venture.

Estimates online put the England international's net worth somewhere between $8 million and $15 million (£6m - £11m).

That is a relatively modest figure for the Man United star and, with multiple millions flowing into his bank account through his salary and assorted sponsor deals, it is bound to increase substantially.

Lingard was rewarded for his performances for Man United following the conclusion of the 2016-17 season when he was handed a fresh four-year contract in April 2017.

The new deal sees him pocket a salary of around £100,000 a week, which means that he will earn roughly £21 million for the duration, without taking performance-dependent bonuses into account.

A weekly salary of £100k amounts to £5.2m a year, which is quite an increase on his previous deal.

However, despite receiving a handsome pay packet, Lingard trails some way behind his midfield team-mate Paul Pogba, who earns in the region of £290,000 a week.

Below, you can say a breakdown of how much Lingard earns per day, week, month, year and more.

Timeframe Earnings*
Per second £0.17
Per minute £9.90
Per hour £595.20
Per day £14,285.70
Per week £100,000
Per month £400,000
Per year £4.8m

What businesses does Jesse Lingard have?

Outside of football, Lingard is beginning to pursue a career in fashion, establishing his own line of clothing under the brand name 'JLINGZ', which is a reference to his nickname.

JLINGZ was launched in the summer of 2018 and the initial range of products is limited to caps, t-shirts and hoodies.

Lingard is particularly imaginative when it comes to goal celebrations and he often changes it up with different dances to mark occasions when he hits the back of the net.

The midfielder has trademarked the unique 'JLingz' celebration, which sees him raise his two hands in front of his face to produce a image that represents his initials J and L.

Among the dances Lingard has incorporated into his celebrations repertoire are the 'Milly Rock', which was popularised by the rapper 2 Milly, and, more recently, the 'shoot dance' from the video game Fortnite.

Of course, it's no surprise that many of these celebrations are performed alongside Pogba, with the pair previously 'dabbing' together.
