​Lindelof cools Man Utd link

Victor Lindelof has denied claims that he has agreed to join Premier League giants Manchester United.

Lindelof has been incessantly linked with a move to Manchester United since the January transfer window last season and reports had emerged recently claiming that the Red Devils reached an agreement over a big money swoop for the Swedish international.

The 22-year-old told reporters in Sweden: "I'm not [leaving] -- I have a contract, so I'll be back. I'm not saying anything about that [interest from United]. I say what I always say -- I have a contract with Benfica, and that's what I'm focused on.

"I just try to focus on what's important for me. I know a lot of things get written, but I don't think it's right for me to read it all the time. It wouldn't suit me to read rumours."
