As reported by The Mirror, Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof this summer.
If Wolves are to survive relegation on their return to the English Premier League next season, they’ll need a big summer transfer window to enhance Nuno Espirito Santo’s already talented squad.
One player that could arrive at Molineux is Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.
That’s according to The Mirror, who say that the division’s new boys are keen on bringing him to the club on loan after the Swede had a difficult debut campaign at Old Trafford.
The paper reckon the deal for the Swedish international defender, who was signed by United from Benfica for £31m last summer, hinges on Jose Mourinho’s relationship with agent Jorge Mendes, who has been working closely with Wolves over the last year.
It would be a stunning bit of business if Wolves manage to secure a defender of Lindelof’s calibre next season.
While he hasn’t quite managed to make the central defensive position his own this term, he has shown glimpses of real quality for United, making 28 appearances in all competitions.
Still just 23 years of age, he has excellent long term potential so the prospect of him getting more used to the English game for a season on loan might not be the worst option for the Old Trafford side and he would undoubtedly improve Santo’s options at Wolves.
It seems like a long shot, but it’s a move that might just work out for all parties.
