Former England international Ray Wilkins claims new Manchester United signing Victor Lindelof “has done nothing” at Benfica.
United have agreed a £31million deal to sign the Sweden international centre-back and the Old Trafford club say the deal is now subject to international clearance, the agreement of personal terms and a medical, which will take place next week.
Wilkins though, a former United midfielder for five years in the early 1980s, is not impressed with the signing of the 22-year-old and believes Jose Mourinho should have signed Burnley’s Michael Keane, who has also been linked with a return to the club.
“We’ve got young Keane has done exceptionally well at Burnley, we’re looking to bring him back at Manchester United for £28m, all of a sudden Lindelof is 30 [million],” Wilkins told Sky Sports.
“Now, when we bring someone in from Europe, it always starts with a three. This guy has done nothing. Absolutely nothing.
“Yet Keane has played a season exceptionally well in the Premier League, but we’re talking £25m. This guy’s coming in at £32m, £33m. Can he do it? We know Keane can, yet we’re prepared to spend.
“It always starts with a three, or a four, or a five. No one gets anything cheap from Europe because it’s the Premier League.”
