Manchester United treble-winner Jesper Blomqvist believes his former club have targeted Sweden’s answer to Rio Ferdinand in Victor Lindelof.
He told the Manchester Evening News: “I was watching the November match between Sweden and France on TV and caught a glimpse of Jose Mourinho in the stand.
“My first thought was that it could only be Victor Lindelof he was looking at. My second thought was what a great signing that would be for the player and Manchester United. It would be perfect.
“I have seen him play for the national under-21s, the senior side and in the Champions League for Benfica and he has the right qualities.
“He’s quick, confident with the ball, likes to play and is very strong. For United fans I think the best comparisons would be with Rio Ferdinand and Ronny Johnsen.
“I’m not saying he is at their level yet but he is very capable of getting there. He’s a mature player and a mature person.”
