Lindelof plays down Man Utd talk - ‘I thrive in Benfica’

Victor Lindelof is remaining calm regarding constant speculation linking him with Manchester United.

The Swedish defender continues to be spoken about as a serious summer target for the Red Devils, who again watched him in action for Benfica last week.

Lindelof, 22, signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the Lisbon giants earlier this month and has no intention of leaving the Estadio da Luz anytime soon.

"Much has been written but it's nothing I have focused on," he told Swedish publication Expressen.

"I have always focused on what was important to me and it's club football. There is no difference for me.

"As I said I thrive in Benfica and that's where the focus has been. A lot has been written but I've said nothing."

Regarding why he signed a new deal with Benfica, Lindelof added: "Because it felt good. I enjoy the club and feel I evolve every day.

"It was an easy choice. Both parties were very happy."
