Fenerbahce ‘expected’ to sign Man Utd star for £7m after Jose Mourinho request

Fenerbahce manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof this summer, according to Turkish outlet Fotomac.

The Sweden international is one of United’s longest-serving players, with 259 appearances, but his future appears uncertain.

His contract expires in June next year, and the club has not opened discussions with him about a possible renewal.

Lindelof is reportedly the first name on Mourinho’s shortlist to bolster Fenerbahce’s defence.

He is keen on reuniting with the Portuguese tactician who signed him for United in 2017.

The centre-back is reportedly valued at £13 million, but the Turkish giants will make an offer of around £7m for the former Benfica man.

United must not sell Lindelof on the cheap

United are in negotiations to sign Everton ace Jarrad Branthwaite. The Toffees want £70m, but United will be hoping to secure an agreement for less.

The club could also pursue another centre-back. Lille’s Leny Yoro and Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo are among the players under consideration.


Lindelof has been viewed as a back-up in central defence and will not want to become an unused substitute with the arrival of two signings in the current window.

United should still stand firm on their valuation, and selling him for £7m does not make sense.

Clubs will try to take advantage of the contract situation, but the hierarchy should demand at least £20m to part ways with the 29-year-old ace this summer.
