Jesse Lingard was set to leave Manchester United as several clubs tried to bring him on board. After an impressive loan spell at West Ham, David Moyes was eager to sign the Englishman on a permanent basis.
Newcastle were also interested in the 29-year-old, but he was forced to stay in Manchester and see out his contract, which ends in June.
The academy graduate remained on the bench for the Red Devils in their final home game of the season and was not given a farewell.
Following this, the midfielder’s brother posted a wrathful message on Instagram: “20 years of blood sweat, and tears, 4 domestic trophies, 3 cups final goals, not even a farewell. No wonder it’s Conference League next year.
“Attacking players for celebrations when the clubs are being sold to the super league ok. Class of 92, Busby Babes, you’re run by people who don’t even know the offside trap. Classless and the fans need to realize. Goodnight, God bless!
“Been there since nine years of age and didn’t even get a send-off!!! Well done bro your family is proud.”
