Victor Lindelof, Man United star, has extended his contract at Old Trafford until 2024 amid Barcelona interest.
Interestingly, the 25-year-old was reportedly on the radar of Spanish giants Barcelona, but he opted to keep faith with Man United by signing an extension.
According to Manchester United’s official website, the new deal will see Lindelof’s salary rise from £60,000 per week to about £150,000 weekly, with the Red Devils having an option to further extend the Sweden international’s deal by an additional year.
At the last count, Lindelof, who arrived at the Theatre of Dreams in 2017, has featured 74 times for United so far, playing in the heart of Red Devils’ defence along with Harry Maguire.
Speaking with the club’s official website Lindelof, the Swede revealed why he decided to pen an extension, even as he looks forward to winning more trophies.
“Since the day I arrived at United it has felt like home. I have grown significantly both as a player 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 team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support.“I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs.
“I’m still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club,” Lindelof summed up.
