MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly activated the option to extend Victor Lindelof’s contract.
The defender’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season.
But according to The Athletic, he is now set to stay at Old Trafford until June 2025.
Man Utd have triggered the option to extend his contract by another 12 months amid growing uncertainty surrounding his future.
But some fans are now frustrated at United’s decision to keep him beyond this season.
One person tweeted: “We are a joke! He’s not good enough we need better quality players!”
Another agreed, adding: “This is why we will remain in mediocrity, keep extending contracts of players that aren’t anywhere near good enough.”
A third commented: “Would have liked to see him go tbh he’s not United standard.”
While a fourth wrote: “If this is a decision by INEOS then it looks like business as usual. We need to be more ruthless with unwanted players. Lindelof is not the future and his wages can easily be freed up for other players. I doubt we find a buyer that makes sense in the summer.”
Lindelof joined Man Utd in a £31million transfer from Benfica in 2017 and has since made 249 appearances.
The Red Devils currently sit seventh in the Premier League table with 31 points from 19 games.
