Everton to make move for £32m Man United defensive flop

Date published: Sunday 10th June 2018 8:16

Everton are reportedly interested in signing Victor Lindelof from Manchester United.

Lindelof cost United £32m last summer, but has struggled for first-team minutes ever since the move.

The Swede will be at the World Cup, but started 13 league games last season and rarely looked assured.

The Sunday Mirror run an exclusive that new Everton manager Marco Silva has drawn up a list of transfer targets with new director of football Marcel Brands, and Lindelof’s name appears on it.

Slightly ludicrously, the story claims that Everton are willing to pay £35m for Lindelof. If United can make a profit on him, they would surely be happy to sell.

Silva knows Lindelof from his time in Portuguese football with Benfica, who he left to join Manchester United.

It’s worth pointing out that the story says that Jose Mourinho has no great desire to sell Lindelof, preferring to give him another season to impress. Let’s see what he says when the money is on the table.
