Manchester United are reportedly considering the option of loaning out Victor Lindelof for the 2018/19 campaign. The Sweden international arrived at Old Trafford last summer with a huge reputation but he has yet to establish himself as a regular in the starting lineup.

Over the course of the season, Lindelof has made just 12 starts in the Premier League and according to The Sun, Jose Mourinho could be prepared to send him out on loan next season in order to gain regular gametime.

United currently possess the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Daley Blind, who can slot into the central defensive positions but the future of the latter remains uncertain beyond the summer.

Mourinho has regularly spoken about the need to reinforce the midfield with Michael Carrick on the cusp of retirement but reports suggest that the club could also pursue another central defender.

Ex-graduate Jonny Evans is currently the preferred pick to rejoin the club from West Bromwich Albion whilst Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti is also said to be on the summer wishlist.
