Wolves Eyeing A Summer Move For 23 Y/O Manchester United Defender: Good Move For All Parties?

Wolves are lining up a loan move for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelöf this summer. According to recent reports, the West Midlands side are planning to make a loan move for the Swedish international when the transfer window opens in the summer. The Red Devils centre-back has been a sporadic feature under Jose Mourinho during the course of this campaign since his £31m move from Benfica last summer.

The 23-year-old has struggled to find consistency in this campaign and has been unable to convince the Special One to trust him on a regular basis. Mourinho has made use of all his centre-back options which include the Swedish defender as well as Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly so far this season. 

Lindelof has featured heavily over the past few weeks but is still not guaranteed a starting place in the Red Devils’ first-team. The former Benfica player has made 29 appearances for United this term and has mostly struggled during his first season at Old Trafford. A potential move to the Molineaux Stadium this summer could turn out to be a good decision for all parties as the United defensive ace will definitely benefit from playing regular first-team football in Nuno Espirito Santo’s starting eleven.

Th Reds of Manchester completed their league campaign with a total tally of 81 points after 38 league fixtures. They are now preparing for a season-defining clash versus Chelsea in the FA Cup final next weekend. Retaining some of their top talents could go a long way in helping them close the gap to Manchester City next term but for players such as Lindelof, it is highly significant that they can experience regular football in order to take their game to the next level.

Lindelof can undoubtedly flourish under the guidance of Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves and a potential loan deal might help him take his game to the next level. Wolves have the likes of Conor Coady, Wily Boly and Ryan Bennett competing for a place in Santo’s first-team. The addition of Lindelof will definitely add more competition for places within the Wolves squad and improve their team significantly ahead of the new campaign in the English top-flight.
