Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof’s agent has admitted that he is a is a target for a “great European club” but will only be able to leave Old Trafford if Manchester United let him, MySportDab reports.
Lindelof has been linked with a move to Barcelona this summer with the Catalan club reportededly eyeing him as an option at centre-back if they miss out on Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.
The 24-year-old’s agent reportedly talked to Barca officials at the unveiling of Frenkie De Jong, and has now revealed an unnamed club wants Lindelof.
“Lindelof is on the radar of a great Europeanclub, but leaving United depends on the English club,”
The 42-year-old is also the agent of Frenkie de Jong, and reportedly spoke to Barca officials about the situation of Lindelof when he traveled to Catalunya for the Netherlands midfielder’s presentation at Camp Nou.
But Lindelof has appeared focused on performing for Man Utd next season.
The former Benfica man last month spoke about the squad’s mindset going into pre-season preparations.
“Well there’s a lot of excitement of course, because we haven’t seen each other for a long time,” he told MUTV.
“It’s always nice to see all the players and you know everyone is just excited to get started again, to work hard and get ready for the season.”
Lindelof experienced teething problems in his first campaign at Manchester United, failing to make much of an impression on Jose Mourinho as the club reached the FA Cup final.
The Red Devils are set for a tricky start to the Premier League season with a game against Chelsea at Old Trafford on the opening day.
