Man United planning move for Chelsea target


Benfica star on radar

Manchester United are planning a move for Benfica star Victor Lindelof, who has also been targeted by Chelsea.

Portuguese media say the Manchester United boss is considering making a bid for the 22 year old in January.

However, they are not the only ones keeping an eye on the defender.

Chelsea, Juventus, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be interested.

If Mourinho decides to go for it he knows exactly how much Lindelof will cost. The same report is saying that he has a £26million release clause.

He is likely to play right-back or centre-back if he moves to Old Trafford, and would be ideal cover for Matteo Darmian if he leaves the club.

Mourinho is going through something of a defensive crisis at the moment with Valencia, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly all sidelined.
