27-year-old Manchester United hot prospect Jesse Lingard is hoping to show his commitment to Instagram by arriving in Dubai a week before the rest of the squad to upload pics and vids.

The England forward arrived in Dubai yesterday for additional social media usage despite the Old Trafford outfit’s instruction to ‘give it a bloody rest for two weeks’.

Lingard has come under heavy criticism of late with many observers claiming his football career is having a negative impact upon his Instagram activity.

However, the Warrington-born star is aiming to prove his doubters wrong by demonstrating his unwavering commitment to the photo-sharing social networking service.

The winger arrived at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex on Monday to put his thumbs and smartphone through its paces with a string of uploads.

‘Sesh done’, he giggled during a short video he shared to his Instagram story.

The grown-man also posted clips of himself performing Fortnite dances enjoyed by children as well as a series of ridiculous f**king hand gestures.

Meanwhile, influencers across the globe praised Lingard’s attitude and desire to become one of the biggest names on the internet.

Irritating tw*t Cameron Dallas, who has 19.8m followers on Insta, said:

‘We could all learn a thing or two about d*kcking about on your phone from JLingz’.

‘He may be sh*te on the pitch but on the Gram he’s an integral part of the squad’.

‘Click on my merch sale guys’.

Lingard is rumoured to be one of United’s highest-paid social media influencers, earning almost £4M-per-year.

But that’s nothing compared to teammate, Paul Pogba, who earns £290,000-per-week making him one of the richest Instagram stars on the planet.

Both men are represented by Italian-born football agent, Carmine ‘Mino’ Raiola.

The 52-year-old made the headlines in 2016 when he purchased the home of one of America’s most infamous mob bosses.

‘It’s an honour to be linked with one of the most notorious gangsters in history’, said the Capone family.
