According to Jesper Blomqvist, Victor Lindelof Might Be a Great Option for Manchester United

Blomqvist stated that Benfica’s Lindelof has the proper qualities to be a successful defender. He added that Lindelof would be perfect for Manchester United after he claimed that the centre-back is of the same mould as Ronny Johnsen and Rio Ferdinand. The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Man United. However, both Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan have intentions to secure his services during January 2017. However, the star athlete is set on Old Trafford and does not want to wait until this season ends. Jesper Blomqvist told the Manchester Evening News that he was watching the November match between France and Sweden and he managed to catch a glimpse of Mourinho in the stand. So his first thought was that he could only be looking at Victor Lindelof. His second thought was that would be a great signing for both Manchester United and the player. It would be perfect. The Mirror reported that the initial transfer cost for Lindelof will be £37.8 million ($46.7 million), which might rise up to £50 million ($61.8 million) since Benfica wants £13 million ($16.1 million) on add-ons. Jesper Blomqvist played with United between 1998 and 2001, and he advised their manager to complete the transfer of Lindelof. Jose Mourinho has summer signing Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones as well as Marcos Rojo as the main central defenders in the team. All of them have been impressive in the recent times. Not to mention that the potential arrival of Victor Lindelof will help improve the competition for a place in the starting lineup.
