Victor Lindelof casts doubt on Man Utd future as he reveals he will hold transfer talks with Erik ten Hag
VICTOR LINDELOF has cast doubt over his Manchester United future and indicated he will hold talks with the club at the end of the season.
The Swedish defender has been at Old Trafford for six years after being signed by Jose Mourinho.
But this season he has found first-team football hard to come by as the club bought in reinforcements to strengthen their backline.
Lindelof is now arguably fourth-choice behind Rafael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and club captain Harry Maguire.
The 28-year-old is now off on international duty but faced questions from reporters on life at Old Trafford and what the future could hold for him.
Asked if was frustrating to not be playing more regularly, Lindelof said: “Well of course like every player, you want to play ever game and obviously I have not done that this season.
“But I haven’t thought about that, right now I’m focusing on the national team and then of course the rest of the season with the club and then in the summer we’ll have to re-evaluate and see what’s best.
“But like I always say when I come here, it’s a pleasure to be here and I’m very happy to represent my country and I’m really looking forward to the games that we have.”
The impressive partnership of Varane and Martinez for United has seen Lindelof relegated to the sidelines.
The star has also had to watch left-back Luke Shaw occasionally cover for one of the defenders while he’s been left on the bench.

Lindelof has made 217 United appearances but only has nine Premier League outings to his name this season, compared to 28, 29 and 35 appearances in the past three campaigns.
His contract expires at the end of next season and reports have indicted a potential move to Inter Milan could be on the cards.
Speculation also surrounds Maguire who may be facing similar frustrations over his lack of football.
The former Leicester defender has been linked with a shock move to PSG in recent weeks.
