LIN FOR THE WIN MANCHESTER UNITED defender Victor Lindelof is on the radar of Inter Milan, according to reports.
The Italian club are braced for the potential departure of Milan Skriniar – at target for Paris Saint-Germain.
Victor Lindelof is being targeted by Inter Milan as a replacement for Skriniar
And that move could have a knock-on effect for Man Utd.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reports Lindelof is among Inter’s top targets.
But the Red Devils are not keen to sell to avoid having to go into the transfer window themselves.
“Victor Lindelof, option in the list but Man Utd want to keep him – as Lille don’t want to sell Tiago Djalo now.”
Djalo has been linked with an Old Trafford move in recent weeks but United do not appear set to move for the 22-year-old in this window.
The Red Devils bought Lindelof in 2017 but he has faded into the background this season after the arrival of Lisandro Martinez in July.
The Swede has only made six Premier League appearances this season and appears to have slipped down the pecking order behind Martinez, Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire.
The 28-year-old has been largely limited to cup appearances, including Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Reading.
Lindelof may not be needed if Inter can keep hold of Skriniar.
But they face a challenge from PSG and even potentially interest from the Premier League.
Inter are also believed to have eyes on former Man Utd defender Chris Smalling who has reportedly handed in a transfer request at Roma.
