The 28-year-old has entered the last year of his agreement and battled to make the United seat towards the finish of last season yet Lingard began preparing with his parent club at Carrington last week.
“He came seven or eight days later than the rest but he’s a naturally fit boy,” Solskjaer said. “He’s a man, he played with a few boys but he’s one of the men!
“Jesse has come back, been bright, he wants to fight for his place and there’s nothing better than seeing players want to fight for their place.
“What he did towards the end of last season, that’s the true Jesse, that’s what we know he’s capable of and, for us, I think we saw towards the end that we lacked some options at times and Jesse is in the plans at the moment, yeah.”
Lingard has attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham are open to signing him on a permanent basis.
