Last November, Lindelof drew high praise from United’s recently departed striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who said his countryman is “good enough for the big clubs out there.”
But this is what he said about Lindelof last November:
“I think Victor is doing great things, he is playing good for Benfica, he gets a lot of responsibility for the national team now, he is growing.
“Is he good enough for United? I think he’s good enough for the big clubs out there. It’s up to him what he wants. Whatever he chooses will be good for him. I know he is hot on the market so let him make the right choice, what fits him good.”
Lindelof himself had suggested this week that his future could become clearer after Sweden’s World Cup qualifier against France in Stockholm on Friday, a 2-1 win in which he played all 90 minutes.
