Ibrahimovic talks up ability of Man Utd target

Lindelof ready to join a big club - Zlatan

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels his fellow Swede Victor Lindelof deserves a big-club move in the future. The 22-year-old defender is a transfer target for the Red Devils.

Lindelof, who can play at either right-back or centre-back, has captured interest from a host of European clubs following his excellent progress with Benfica.

Former Sweden international Ibrahimovic believes the youngster has developed into a top-class talent in his time at Benfica, and it is left for him to decide on where he would pursue his next challenge.

."Victor is doing great things. He has a lot of responsibility for the national team, he is ready for the big clubs out there, it's up to him and what he wants. I know he's hot on the market," he told reporters.

Lindelof currently has a £26m release clause in his contract, and Benfica are keen on offering him an improved deal in order to double his valuation.
