The eternal transfer churn goes on, with this week’s favourite flavour being Victor Lindelof to Manchester United.
The Swedish defenders has once against been connected with a move to the Red Devils, with the latest baseless figure floating in the ether being a £42m valuation of the 22 year old, as referenced by the Sun in their piece today.
Further down the article, the paper comments on how well Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have done in recent weeks, rather undermining their own argument that Jose Mourinho may feel the need to spend so much on an unproven foreign talent.
While unproven in a top league, it’s hard to see Lindelof not fitting in fairly quickly, especially when one looks at his superb statistics playing in Portugal. His passes per game of 60 shows he is ready to launch attacks from the back, and his average WhoScored rating of 7.05 is very impressive.
