Victor Lindelof TEAMtalk

Victor Lindelof says he was never distracted by the transfer talk which linked him with Barcelona over the summer.

Lindelof was one of Manchester United’s outstanding performers last season, prompting widespread reports that the Catalan giants were interested in luring the centre-back to Spain.

And his agent – Hasan Cetinkaya – confirmed that Barcelona’s interest in his client intensified after Juventus won the race to sign Dutch starlet Matthijs de Ligt.

Cetinkaya said that Lindelof is “one of the best center-backs on his feet and Barcelona wanted him. That was it. I can talk openly about that now”

Lindelof though says his head wasn’t turned, he told Expressen: “There was a lot of writing about it. But for me, I have a contract with United and I am the loyal type.

“For me it was never a question either, I wanted to stay in United and believe very much in what we have going on and that is also why I signed a new contract. I love to represent United and to wear that shirt every day.

“My goal when I came here was to win titles and do well for all supporters. But I haven’t won a title yet, so it’s my big goal to take home big titles with United.

“If we get to the level we can do and everyone can do their best, we can win trophies.”




Instead of moving, Lindelof in fact signed to a new long-term contract with United in September to see him tied to the Old Trafford club until 2024.
