Wolves won’t be consigned to buying just one centre back from Manchester – they want them all. Wolves are set to make a daring attempt to land Manchester United most loved defender Victor Lindelof as well as City man Otamendi this summer, we can reveal. The Black Country outfit spoke with United about the Sweden international last summer, but Jose Mourinho insisted he did not want to lose the 24-year-old.
Lindelof has been involved heavily for United this season, but new United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to rebuild – including at centre-half which could see a number of defenders depart.
Wolves boss Nuno is now ready to sanction a fresh bid for Lindelof, who was also recently linked with a move to Lyon, as one of a number of players he is targeting to bolster his squad further this summer.
One player not in Nuno’s long-term plans is believed to be Adama Traore – who has failed to nail down a regular starting spot despite arriving as the club’s record signing from Middlesbrough last summer.
However, despite a quasi-emergence at Old Trafford this season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bolster his defence this summer, and Lindelof could be a casualty of this rebuild, with Nuno Espirito Santo ready to pounce, alongside Ligue 1’s Lyon – who may or may not be coveting Joe Hart, as well.
