Man Utd star makes transfer desire clear as Fabrizio Romano makes ‘priority’ claim
Manchester United are now out of action for around two weeks as the international break takes hold The Red Devils went into the break on the back of an unconvincing yet important win, seeing off Luton Town at home.
That win will have eased the pressure on Erik ten Hag a little after a big defeat in the Champions League, but a very tricky run of fixtures awaits on the other side of the break. In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Old Trafford.
United star Victor Lindelof has admitted he would like to return to home country club Västerås SK before his career eventually comes to an end – which will be no time soon.
“I hope they are ready to take the step,” he told Fotboll Skanalen. “Västerås as a city I think needs to have a club in the highest league. It was about time. I hope that the people on the board and around have a handle on the situation so that they can establish themselves in the Allsvenskan.
“I have never played in the Allsvenskan and it is clear that it would have been fun to come home and play for a year in the Allsvenskan. We’ll see how the body feels in a few years because I feel that I don’t want to come home and be half injured and not be able to perform at a good level. Getting to come home and play with VSK would be a lot of fun. It’s my hometown. Should it happen that I come home, it is definitely at the top of the list.”
Fabrizio Romano has been discussing United’s transfer policy for next year as the January transfer window comes into focus.
“[There are] reports linking them with an interest in a winger and a right-back this January, but that’s not the information I have. As I recently said, I’m told their priority for 2024 is a centre-back,” he said on his Daily Briefing.
Romano added: “In my opinion they’re already well covered at right-back with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot.”
