Man Utd Can Finally Agree €58m Star Signing this Summer
Manchester United comprehensively defeated Leicester City yesterday and are now only 2 points behind Arsenal, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
As far as the transfers are concerned, the Red Devils did not sign any key player to reinforce their squad last month but we can expect them to spend big in the summer transfer window.
We recently covered a report (via Noticias ao Minuto) claiming that United have agreed a deal with Benfica for right back Nelson Semedo. According to the latest reports, Semedo’s teammate Victor Lindelof is once again in the limelight.
As per Express, Jose did not opt to sign the Swedish international for £34.5million last month. Now, the Portuguese giants have paid to remove the minimum release clause and United will have to pay 50 million pounds (€58million) to secure his signature next summer.
This season, the former Vasteras center half has featured in 18 league games for Benfica, who are leading Porto by a point in the Primeira Liga.
As per the provided Express link, Mourinho rates Lindelof very highly. However, do United really need Victor?
The former Chelsea boss splashed heavy cash to sign Eric Bailly last summer and currently his central defense is very solid. In such a scenario, spending around 50 million pounds on a CB makes little sense and Mourinho must look to strengthen other key areas of the team.
