Manchester United

22-year-old international ace lifts lid on Man United transfer talk

Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern really were excited in January amid links between their club and Victor Lindelof of Benfica, so it came as a disappointment to them when a deal failed to come to fruition.

The Sweden international was heavily aligned with a winter switch to Old Trafford, while since the passing of the deadline The Sun have claimed he remains a target for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Alas, since then he has penned a new contract at Benfica, but with so many players having done so in the past only to move on soon after, there remains a chance the Manchester giants may indeed get their man.

And Swedish outlet Expressen haven’t forgotten about the Man United links and quizzed the defender on them, to which he replied:

“Much has been written but it’s nothing I have focused on.

“I have always focused on what was important to me and it’s club football. There is no difference for me. As I said I thrive in Benfica and that’s where the focus has been.

“A lot has been written but I’ve said nothing.”

Lindelof, 22, only signed for Benfica as a youth prospect from Vasteras in his homeland in 2012 and has been capped 11 times at senior international level.

Manchester United should return for Victor Lindelof this summer – agree?
