Barcelona are likely to attempt to sign Manchester United’s Swedish centre-back Victor Lindelof if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can complete a transfer swoop for England international Harry Maguire, according to the latest reports from the Spanish press.
The Leicester City centre-back has been strongly connected with a potential £80m move to the Old Trafford outfit this summer by the Daily Star and other sources, though the saga continues to drag on and on.
Harry would be a superb signing for Manchester United if they can pull it off, and would also give the Norwegian manager a long list of centre-back options, many of whom he probably will not particularly want.
The likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have not really been good enough for the Red Devils in recent times, and a British daily newspaper the Daily Mail claimed the Maguire deal would see Ole look to sell one of his defenders.
However, it may be that Manchester United end up losing one of their better central defenders in the form of Victor, who has been linked with Ernesto Valverde’s Blaugrana by Mundo Deportivo.
Now Don Balon state the Catalan outfit’s board could push to bring in the Sweden international defender if United do end up signing the Foxes’ star defender this summer transfer window.
The newspaper suggests, however, that this may also hinge on selling the likes of France international duo Clement Lenglet or Samuel Umtiti, though Lindelof was previously linked by the Spanish publication without those conditions.
