Manchester United man ‘offered’ to Inter Milan ahead of potential summer sale

The Red Devils could well be losing another player this summer

Manchester United outcast Victor Lindelof has reportedly been offered to Serie A giants Inter Milan as they look to replace PSG-bound centre-back Milan Skriniar.

The Swedish defender, who joined Manchester United in 2017 from Benfica, has fallen out of favour under Erik ten Hag following the arrival of Lisandro Martinez and the return to fitness of Raphael Varane.

He has started just five Premier League games this season, and has often been used as a late substitute or a rotation option for the high-flying Red Devils.

And the 28-year-old has hinted in recent weeks that he would be looking for more regular first team action this summer, telling the media on international duty that though he hadn’t though of a transfer, it wasn’t off the cards.

“Of course, like every player, you want to play every game and obviously I haven’t done that this season,” he said.

“But like I always say when I come here [to play for Sweden], it’s a pleasure to be here and I’m always happy to represent my country.

“Like I said, I want to play, that’s why I play football. I want to play games, but I haven’t thought about that [potential transfer].

As per reports in Italy, however, the Swede has ‘offered’ himself to Inter Milan, who are going to be on the hunt for a new defender this summer after failing to agree a new deal with Milan Skriniar, who will join Paris-Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

Out of contract in 2024 as it stands (though Manchester United have an option for a further year), this summer could well represent the last opportunity for United to see any real return on the 35m euro transfer fee they shelled out for Lindelof, though it is almost certain that they will have to accept a much lower fee than they paid six years ago.
