£120,000-a-week defender signed long-term contract with Man United

Victor Lindelof has committed his long-term future to Red Devils, signing a new deal until 2024 with an option for an extra year. Sweden international joined Man United in a £32m deal from Benfica in 2016 and has emerged as a key figure of the first-team over the past couple of years resulting in links to Barcelona in the transfer window.

Victor established himself as a first-choice under both Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last campaign and has started all five Premier League matches this term alongside Harry Maguire. Norwegian coach has sought to tie down his key figures to new contracts with Martial, Rashford and De Gea all committing their futures recently.

Speaking to Red Devils website, Lindelof said: ‘Since the day I arrived at Old Trafford it has felt like home. I have grown significantly both as a footballer and as a person in the last two years and for that, I am grateful to everyone at the club for their help and support.

‘I love playing football, and my aim now is to help the club to win titles and repay the fans for their unrivalled support. Amid signing a new contract, the 25-year-old defender has made a shaky start to the campaign, being partially at fault for goals with Crystal Palace and Southampton, where Jannik Vestergaard outjumped him.

Despite that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the Swedish centre-back is an integral part of his plans moving forward, due in part, to the composure that he brings to the defence.
