Lindelof certainly an interesting solution despite hasn’t been lighting it up yet with Man United. Nevertheless, he has been a regular selection for United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, at the back.
In order to secure the Swede, Blaugrana must be able to convince Solskjaer in selling. It won’t be an easy task, but if Barca are able to provide the right amount of cash, anything can happen.
