Man Utd to make Victor Lindelof decision

Man Utd consider completing Lindelof deal

Manchester United are reportedly considering a deal for Benfica's Victor Lindelof following the sales of Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin.

The duo had hardly featured for the Red Devils this season, and they were offloaded for a combined £36m fee to Lyon and Everton respectively this month.

According to The Star, the Mancunian giants could revive their pursuit for the central defender after they recouped a more-than-decent sum from their recent departures.

Jose Mourinho was initially expected to wait until the summer to fund the player's transfer, but the club could now act before the end of the week in order to sign the Sweden international.

Lindelof is likely to cost an initial package of around £34m as the club seek to strengthen their defence further for the backend of the campaign.

Swedish part-timers Vasteras are due about 10 percent of any sell-on fee on the 22-year-old.
