Manchester United have been quite active when extending contracts for some of their core players.
They already extended deals to Anthony Martial and David De Gea in recent months. Now it was the turn of another core piece, as they have reportedly reached a deal to extend Victor Lindelof’s tenure at Old Trafford.
The Sweden international, who was emerged as a vital defensive piece for Manchester United over the past few months, is now set to play for The Red Devils on a new deal until June 2024.
“Since the day I arrived at United it has felt like home. I have grown significantly both as a player and as a person in the last two years and for that I am grateful to everyone at the club for their help and support. I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support”, Lindelof said in an interview with the club’s official website.
“I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs. I’m still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club,” he finished.
Lindelof arrived to Old Traford from Benfica in 2017 for a £30m transfer fee. He has made 74 appearances in all competitions for the club.
