The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that a few more signings will come to Old Trafford this summer. The Red Devils have brought in some exciting new faces in recent years, and a few more could be just what Jose Mourinho needs.
However, he also cannot ignore the current crop of players that currently resides within his team. Some have been very successful, however, the same cannot be said for every member of the Man Utd squad.
One individual that has struggled more than most is young Victor Lindelof. Signed from Benfica last summer, the 23-year-old has failed to make a name for himself in the heart of the Man Utd first team, and that’s been a problem for him.
He has found himself thrust out of the first team for much of the campaign, with Jose Mourinho clearly not rating him after a poor start in England.
It’s particularly bad for Lindelof given that Man Utd’s defence has been at its weakest state for quite some time this season. The likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and even Eric Bailly haven’t been at their best, and yet Lindelof hasn’t been able to hold down a regular spot in the first team.
Next season, then, it could be make or break for the Swede. Another poor campaign could see Mourinho give up on him in a similar vein to Luke Shaw, whilst a fantastic start to the season could change everyone’s opinion on him. If he goes with the former option, though, he could find himself out of the club very quickly.
