Wolverhampton Wanderers have made an official approach for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof, according to Team Talk.

The Swedish defender only signed for Manchester United last summer, joining from Portuguese side Benfica for a reported fee of £31 million, but he never really lived up to the heights of the great central defenders he was tasked with following at Old Trafford.

Reports suggest that the Black Country club have submitted two separate enquiries to the Premier League giants. They have enquired about bringing the defender in on a loan deal, but they are also reported to be interested in signing him permanently.

If that is the case, it is believed Manchester United will want to recoup the money they paid for the Swede last summer, so he will cost Wolves over £30 million.

Team Talk reports that Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho is seriously considering the offer to let Victor Lindelof go permanently, despite having worries that it is too soon after he arrived at the club.

That being said, if United can get back what they paid Benfica for him, it is imaginable that a lot of Man United fans will see that as a good deal, as he has seriously struggled to impress the Old Trafford faithful.

He made just 29 appearances in all competitions in the 2017/18 season, with only 17 of them coming in the Premier League.

That being said, the 23-year-old does still boast a wealth of experience, having played 19 times for his native Sweden, and it is likely he will play a part for the Swedes as this summer’s World Cup.
