Manchester United are still monitoring Benfica’s Swedish defender, Victor Lindelof.
The Red Devils have scouted the defender relentlessly since he was brought to the attention of their manager, Jose Mourinho. They were very close to landing him during the January transfer window, only for Mourinho to decide against adding players to his team at that time.
He has continued to develop his craft while impressing other teams in Europe as well. However, it is claimed that
Mourinho is now ready to go back for the defender.
Manchester United are currently undergoing a defensive crisis that is almost derailing their season. They lost Marcos Rojo to injury last week, and he joins the England duo of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who have already been sidelined for a long time.
United are expected to splash the cash again this summer, as they hope to win the Premier League back within the next three years.
Lindelof will cost the at least £40 million, a figure that would not be hard for United to pay, but they would have to pray that he doesn’t turn out to be a Premier League flop.
