Victor Lindelöf ‘undecided’ as Manchester United take action on his future



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have made an initial decision on the future of Victor Lindelöf with his current contract set to expire this summer.

Victor Lindelöf‘s current contract at Manchester United is set to expire at the end of June 2024, with the player available to negotiate a move away from Erik ten Hag‘s squad with other clubs as soon as the January window opens.

He most recently extended his contract in 2019, earning an estimated £120,000 a week, and has been with the club since July 2017, entering his seventh season at Old Trafford after initially signing under Jose Mourinho.

With the Swedish captain’s contract into its final year, the club have decided to activate a clause in his contract that would see it extended into 2025.

This is according to Phil Thomas of The Sun, who claims that the player is yet to decide on his long-term future at the club.

United are taking this decision to make sure that he does not leave the club for free this summer, with the extra year helping preserve his value should either he or the club decide that he is surplus to requirements at the end of the current campaign.

Lindelöf has dropped in the pecking order since Lisandro Martínez signed two summers ago, however has seen plenty of action this season due to a defensive injury crisis that has hit the squad.

Most recently he played at left-back to cover for the injured Sergio Reguilón during United’s thrilling 2-1 win over Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

With the central defender turning 30 in July, his next contract will likely be his final major deal and therefore will take careful consideration ahead of his current expiry.
