Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly decided against offloading Victor Lindelof during the ongoing transfer window.

The Sweden international endured a difficult debut season at Old Trafford last term where he was restricted to just 13 league starts and this spread doubts over his future at the club.

However, The Express now reports that Mourinho has been impressed with the Swede's showing during the course of the World Cup and he could be prepared to offer more opportunities to the defender next term.

In this case, one of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo appear at the risk of being sold in the event of the club signing another centre-back before the transfer deadline.

Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld has been earmarked as the prime option to bolster the heart of the backline but so far, United are yet to come to terms with a transfer fee with the north London outfit.
