Victor Lindelöf “only has one” Serie A club he can join from Manchester United



| Last Updated:


It has been explained that Victor Lindelöf only has one Serie A club he could join if he left Manchester United this summer.

Victor Lindelöf recently had his contract extended by a further year after the Manchester United defender entered an initial final six months of his contract.

Erik ten Hag confirmed earlier this month that the club had activated a one-year extension clause in his current deal, meaning the player cannot leave for free in the summer, but there have been no further discussions with Lindelöf about his long-term future.

Lindelöf, who is the Swedish national team captain and turning 30 in July, may not be at Untied for too much longer, and transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio believes that in terms of the Serie A, he only has one option.

“Players like Smalling decided to come to Italy at the last part of their career. In Italy, we try to have these players because we don’t have the strength to buy when they’re in the important parts of their career,” Di Marzio told Swedish newspaper FotbollDirekt.

“We can give them the opportunity to play for important teams in the Champions League and play in a competitive way.”

“I’ve not heard of any Italian interest in Lindelof in this period, even though a lot of Italian clubs need defenders like Roma, Milan and Napoli. They are trying to get young players and not older players.

“It depends on him if he wants to stay at United. He can play in Italy, Spain, but he might think it’s the right time to go back home and play in his country.” 

Speaking further, Di Marzio has revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has recently taken up a new role at AC Milan, does not have the power to sign Lindelöf.

“It depends on his motivations, but I know he wants to play, so it depends on who gives him the possibility to play.

“Ibrahimovic has started a new role at Milan but doesn’t have the power to say which players the club should sign like Lindelof.

“The Napoli chairman doesn’t want players that are older than 30 years of age.

‘The only possibility could be AS Roma because they need an extra defender, but they have a financial agreement with UEFA for financial fair play, so they can’t sign players if they don’t sell players. They could sell players such as Llorente or Spinazzola, or Renato Sanches, whose salary is so high. If Sanches goes they can use his salary to get another player on loan.”
