Several Premier League clubs are in full scale transfer panic today. It would be no exaggeration to say that a number of clubs in the league are in talks on more than 5 potential deals, trying to get some over the line before the window closes.
Manchester United aren’t one of those clubs, and Jose Mourinho doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to add to his squad, having invested heavily in the summer transfer window. Another big summer was always more likely than picking up scraps now, and that’s how it looks like ending.
The big link to Manchester United during January was Victor Lindelof, and A Bola report that Manchester United had an official spotted at Benfica on Monday night. The ‘spy’ will have seen Lindelof put in an average performance for Benfica as they lost 1-0 away to Vitoria Setubal.
A last minute Lindelof move has to be unlikely, but it can’t be denied Manchester United’s Benfica scouting record will be among the most detailed on the planet.
