‘He is in the orbit of a great European club’: Victor Lindelof’s agent appears to confirm Barcelona interest in Manchester United defender

  • Victor Lindelof’s future at Manchester United has been called into question
  • His agent has confirmed there has been interest from a top club in Europe
  • Barcelona believed to see him as a back up if they miss out on Matthijs de Ligt

Victor Lindelof’s future at Manchester United has been called into question after his agent confirmed there has been interest from a top European club, believed to be Barcelona if they lose out to Juventus in the race for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.

‘Lindelof is in the orbit of a great European club, but leaving United depends on the English club,’ said Hasan Cetinkaya, presumably a reference to United’s pursuit of Leicester’s Harry Maguire.  

However, United have told the Spanish champions that they have no plans to sell the Sweden international, who is currently with United’s squad for the start of their pre-season tour in Australia.

It is a far from ideal situation for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he tries to wipe the slate clean at United and lead the club into a new era.

Besides Paul Pogba, there is also uncertainty surrounding Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and David de Gea with the new season just a month away.

Although Solskjaer has warned that changes are imminent, there have been just two departures — Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia — and two signings in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

Both new players trained at the WACA on Tuesday ahead of United’s opening game against Perth Glory on Saturday. Solskjaer’s side also face Leeds United here before playing Inter Milan in Singapore and Tottenham in Shanghai.
