Victor Lindelof TEAMtalk

Manchester United have tied Victor Lindelof down to a new long-term contract, committing his future to the club until 2024.

The Swedish international initially joined the club in 2017, and has been the main defensive partner for summer signing Harry Maguire so far, starting all five Premier League games.

Now, his early season form has been rewarded with a new contract, which will see him stay at Old Trafford until 2024 – with the club having the option to extend the deal by a further year.

Reports last week suggested Lindelof would double his money as part of the new deal.

Lindelof, who was linked with Barcelona over the summer, told the club’s official website: “Since the day I arrived at United it has felt like home.

“I have grown significantly both as a player and as a person in the last two years and for that I am grateful to everyone at the club for their help and support.

“I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support.

“I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs.

“I’m still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club.”

Lindelof follows David De Gea into committing his future to the club, after the goalkeeper signed an extension on Monday.
