It was reported that a number of Premier League clubs had enquired about signing the Sweden international. And, at the time, it seemed almost certain that Wolverhampton Wanderers would be among them.
After all, Lindelof’s agent is none other than Jorge Mendes, the transfer market string-puller who has a very close relationship with Wolves’ Chinese owners and who paved the way for Ruben Neves, Helder Costa and co to move to Molineux.
And it seems that Wolves are indeed in the chase for Lindelof after all.
And it is understood that Jose Mourinho is seriously considering their offer with the Manchester United boss keen to sign a new centre-back this summer, such as Raphael Varane or Samuel Umtiti, in a move that would push the already out-of-favour Lindelof further down the pecking order.
The report adds that Wolves are confident of doing a deal for the 23-year-old, who looked a nervous wreck at times in his first few months in Manchester and never managed to secure a regular place in Mourinho’s starting XI.
