Crocked Rojo convinced Man Utd boss Mourinho to go for Lindelof

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to splash out on Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.

A Bola says following Marcos Rojo's cruciate knee injury and Chris Smalling and Phil Jones suffering persistent injuries he needs cover in defence.

And Mourinho is ready to renew his interest in Lindelof with a £38m (€45m) summer move.

But Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira apparently values the 22-year-old at closer to £51m (€60m).

Earlier this season, United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic hailed his former Sweden teammate.

"Is he good enough for United? I think he is ready for the big clubs out there. It is up to him what he wants and what the situation says. Whatever he chooses, it will be good for him.

“I know he is hot on the market so let him make the right choice for him."
