Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof expects that the club to extend his contract

According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is confident that the club will offer him a new contract. We feel that it would be a great decision since he’s surely been one of the most improved players in the current squad. He has surely been a great backup for our veteran defender Raphael Varane who is very easily susceptible to injuries.

One of the six first-team players whose contracts expire in June is the 29-year-old. Additionally in the last year of their contracts are Tom Heaton, Jonny Evans, Anthony Martial, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Hannibal Mejbri.

Despite the Red Devils’ poor performance this season, the Sweden captain has performed passably. However, we are now ranked sixth in the Premier League standings surprisingly. On the other hand, our run in the UEFA Champions League is almost over after getting beaten by FC Copenhagen away from home.

United may decide against renewing the contract of some of these players but Lindelof is not likely to be one of them. With Harry Maguire and Varane both thirty and Evans potentially leaving after his contract, Erik ten Hag is anticipated to search for a new centre defender in 2019.

After serving for the international team, Lindelof and United have a challenging away match against Sean Dyche’s Everton waiting for them. Given his versatility and near-perfect work ethic, Lindelof is a player that Manchester United may wish to hold onto.

Since it would be somewhat long before the injured players fully recover and resume their football, Lindelof would temporarily remain the all-round player of the team.

The decision by United to extend Victor Lindelof’s contract makes sense. There’s no reason to allow him to leave the club at this moment. It would be great if he stayed here longer.
