With the furore surrounding the future of Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann taking up much of the back pages at the moment, it seems that many United fans may have forgotten that the club are also in the race to sign a number of other top talents from around Europe.
One of those talents is Victor Lindelof who is close to joining Manchester United, according to reports in Portugal. Record claim the Sweden international is set to sign a long-term contract after his current club Benfica agreed a transfer fee with the Red Devils.
Although United have defended well on the whole this season, Jose Mourinho doesn’t appear completely convinced by his current options at the back, chopping and changing throughout the campaign, so bringing in a defender of his own choosing could have a huge impact at Old Trafford.
Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on Victor Lindelof and the 22-year-old’s proposed move to Old Trafford…
Lindelof seems to be close , i like the look of him tbh #mufc

Semedo & Lindelof will be great buys for Manchester United! Will give us more depth and youth, I think we shouldn't buy a leftback #MUFC

I'm fully expecting Lindelof to be our CB signing this summer ???????? #MUFC

Of all those 4-5 CB linked to #MUFC he impressed me most, so hopefully it works out, if he comes.

Probably won't happen but I'd love to sign Griez Lukaku Fabinho and Lindelof. We'd be a real threat if they all perform well in first season
