Lindelof Talks About Manchester United Interest

share on:

Victor Lindelof has spoken about Manchester United’s interest in him, insisting he is committed to Benfica.

The Swede was Mourinho’s main target in January, but the 22-year-old opted to sign a deal that’ll keep him at Benfica till 2021.

And with Lindelof aware of Manchester United’s interest in him, he doesn’t have any interest in leaving Benfica.

“It feels good that I extended my stay [at Benfica] by one year,” Lindelof told Expressen. “I enjoy playing for the club and feel I evolve every day there. It was an easy choice.

“Both parties were very happy and they wanted to give me a sign that they are satisfied with what I’ve done there.

“Much has been written [about Manchester United] but it’s nothing I have focused on. I have always focused on what was important to me and that’s the team [Benfica]. That [the rumours], makes no difference to me.”

“As I’ve said I’ve been thriving at Benfica and that’s where the focus has been. A lot has been written and I’ve said nothing, I’ve been focused.”

Questioned on whether a summer departure could be on the cards, Lindelof said: “I have a long contract at Benfica and I’m thriving there. It’s a big club and I’m developing every day. I’m only 22 years old and there is no stress [to push through a move].”
