Another day and more Victor Lindelof claims from Portugal. Yes, it’s Christmas Eve, yes Sport Witness is eyeing the wine and mince pies, but there’s further claims from O Jogo.

Once again writing about the transfer as if it were an absolutely sure thing for Jose Mourinho, O Jogo say Lindelof is ‘waiting’ at home in Sweden for confirmation he’s signed for Manchester United.

Lindelof is awaiting an ‘order’ and will then travel to England to have his medical and sign all the paperwork to become a Manchester United player, receiving a five and a half year contract and a wage of €3.5m per year after tax.

It all sounds so easy doesn’t it.

If the transfer is to go through, it’s likely Lindelof will be able to enjoy Christmas in peace first, with completion being just before or just after the January transfer window opens.

Of course, we’ve been here before with Nico Gaitan, but maybe there’s a different feeling about this one.
