Man Utd eye Benfica defender

Manchester United are eyeing Benfica fullback Victor Lindelof.

According to reports in Portugal, the Red Devils have had spotters at every single game Lindelof has played in this season.

The 22-year-old defender is likely to set suitors back somewhere near the £40million mark this summer.

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola is thought to have told his own scouts to make checks on Lindelof as he looks to revamp a backline that has undermined club’s title hopes this season.

The 46-year-old is known to be an admirer of Bilbao’s Aymeric Laporte, but has also been impressed by 11-cap Lindelof.
