Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has signed a new contract at the club thus securing his long-term future with the Premier League outfit.

Lindelof has signed a new five-year deal until the end of the 2023/24 season with the option of an additional year.

The Swedish international center-back has been at Manchester United since signing from Portuguese Super League giants Benfica in 2017.

He has made 71 appearances for Manchester United in a little over two seasons at the club.

Victor Lindelof has grown to become an important first team member at Manchester United.

He has been able to form a potent center-back partnership with Harry Maguire at the club.

Harry Maguire became the most expensive defender in the history of world football when the England international joined the Red Devils from Leicester City.

Manchester United paid £80m to sign Harry Maguire from the Foxes before the Premier League transfer window ended last month.

He beats the previous record of the most expensive defender held by Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.

The Dutch international joined Liverpool from fellow Premier League side Southampton in a £75m deal.

Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire have played all the five league games for Manchester United this season.
