Exclusive: Man United Star Reveals Why He Signed New Contract


Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof was signed by former Manchester United manager José Mourinho from Benfica in 2017.

The centre-back didn’t live up to expectations in his first season at Old Trafford, so much that the Red Devils faithfuls wanted him out of the team.

However, the centre-back surprisingly turned things around during the 2018-19 campaign in which he was regarded as the club’s most in-form defender by fans and pundits.

His improved performances for the Old Trafford outfit forced the Glazers into offering a new five-year contract deal which he gladly accepted earlier in the month.

Meanwhile, the player has revealed the main reason behind his decision to extend his stay at the Theatre of Dreams till the summer of 2024.

According to the Sweden international in an interview with Sky Sports, he sees his future at Old Trafford and he wants to win more trophies with the team.

“I could see my future here so that’s why I signed a new contract – I’m really happy about that. We have a good thing going and I still want to win the big trophies with this club, that has been my goal since I signed,” he said.

Lindelof has played 53 Premier League matches for the Red Devils and he has scored one goal so far. He’s expected to partner summer signing Harry Maguire at the heart of defence when they face Arsenal on Monday.
