Manchester United have been approached by Wolverhampton Wanderers about the possibility of the newly-promoted side signing Victor Lindelof this summer.
In an exclusive from TEAMTalk, it’s said that Jose Mourinho is seriously considering letting the 23-year-old centre-back leave Old Trafford.
Apparently, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is open to talking Lindelof either permanently or on loan, presenting two tempting offers for United this summer.
That said, Mourinho is thought to be unsure on letting Lindelof leave so soon after signing him, although letting him leave for good would present the Red Devils with an opportunity to recoup large amounts of the transfer fee paid to sign him.
Personally, I think it’s too soon to call time on Lindelof’s Old Trafford career. Sure, he had an extremely poor start to life in United red, but as time has gone on, his performance levels have drastically improved.
When comparing him to Phil Jones, I’d take the Swede every single time. Lindelof is calmness personified when in possession, he’s positionally aware and tough in the tackle. Jones has had chances aplenty, why not allow our latest defensive signing that same luxury? It would seem rather unfair if we were to ship one off after a few bad games, particularly when Jones is constantly injured…
