Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have been linked with a shock move for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof according to the latest reports emanating from the media in Spain.
Victor Lindelof has been at Manchester United since his move from Portuguese Super League giants Benfica two years ago.
According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona want to sign Victor Lindelof.
The Barcelona interest was confirmed by his agent.
Five-time European champions Barcelona have spent the majority of their summer chasing a deal for Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt but they are almost certain to miss out on him to Italian champions Juventus.

Barcelona were not ready to pay the huge transfer fee, agent fee and weekly wages involved in the De Ligt transfer.
Lindelof could be targeted as a cheaper option for Manchester United who are keen to sign a new centre back this summer.
Manchester United suffered one of their poorest defensive showings in recent times after the Red Devils conceded 54 goals in just 38 games in the Premier League last season.
Apart from Barcelona, Manchester United are also interested in Matthijs De Ligt in addition to other clubs like Premier League champions Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
