The 21-year-old isn’t exactly a household name and has only really broken into the Benfica first team this season, registering 15 appearances across all competitions – including nine in the Primeira Liga.
Nonetheless, Afton Bladet claim the Sweden international is attracting interest from all across Europe, most notably from French champions PSG, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus – citing Calcio Mercato in regards to the latter three clubs.
And the Swedish publication allege that Manchester United have already placed a ‘concrete’ £2omillion offer for the 6 foot 2 centre-half, who plied his trade with Vasteras SK before signing for Benfica in summer 2012.
The Red Devils reportedly became aware of the defender whilst scouting team-mate Renato Sanches, a long-term transfer target they ultimately missed out on to Bayern Munich.
Lindelof’s contract includes a £23million release clause that United could decide to activate if their aforementioned offer is turned down by the Portuguese giants.
