Manchester United line up £50m move for potential superstar

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Dec 11th 2016

The signing of Eric Bailly has proven to be an inspired one for Manchester United, but you cannot help but feel that Jose Mourinho doesn’t really fancy any of the other centre-backs available to him.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo are all decent enough options, but none of this quartet fall into the world-class bracket.

VICTOR LINDELOF

Finding a reliable partner for the Ivory Coast international therefore remains a priority for the Premier League outfit, with reports in The Telegraph suggesting that they have opened discussions with Benfica over Victor Lindelof.

Rated at around £50m by his Portuguese club, the 22-year-old has emerged as one of the brightest young defensive talents in Europe:

It is a sign of his importance to the team that the Sweden international has started 17 of their 18 matches this season across the Primeira Liga and Champions League, helping them to keep eight clean sheets.

Known for the timing of his tackles, calmness under pressure and aerial dominance, Lindelof has the potential to develop into a genuine world star.
