Lindelof To Reunite With Mourinho In Turkey!

20/06/24 20:50

As reported by Turkish reporter Yağız Sabuncuoğlu, who Football Park ranks as tier 3 for reliability, recently appointed Fenerbache coach Jose Mourinho is interested in a reunion with Manchester United center-back Victor Lindelof.

The Portuguese signed the defender in 2017 when he was in charge of United.

The report states that Fenerbahçe has only made initial contact, but the Swede may be interested in a move as it looks like he won’t be the first-choice starter for The Reds in the coming season, as United are being linked with multiple defenders, such as Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite and Lille’s Leny Yoro.

Lindelof only made 19 appearances for United in the 2023/2024 season, missing most of the campaign due to injury.

Sweden did not qualify for Euro 2024, so the Swede may use this time to get fully fit and could push for a move out of Old Trafford to pursue first-team opportunities.

The defender has been reliable for the Manchester club, filling in as a makeshift left-back as injuries crippled the United backline. The defender has often received criticism from the United faithful for lacking aerial presence. He is known for his passing ability, a major attribute desired from a modern-day defender. His passing accuracy in the Premier League last season was an incredible 89.5%, which may be one of the reasons Mourinho wants to sign the defender for a second time.

Lindelof may have to cut his summer break short to link up with Mourinho in Turkey.
