“Big issues inside the dressing that will expose Erik ten Hag with the board planning to sack him”-Man Utd star involved in ‘furious dressing room bust-up’ may be sold in January despite ‘new contract plan’

Victor Lindelof may be sold in the January transfer window despite the club looking to tie the Sweden international down to a new contract, a fresh report has claimed. Lindelof joined United from Benfica in 2017 and two years later, signed a contract extension at Old Trafford. Yet, in the past two seasons, under the management of Erik ten Hag, the 29-year-old has slipped behind Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the centre-back pecking order.Nevertheless, despite limited game time, the Star claim United have the option to extend the player’s contract by a further year and intend to do just that.

However, rather than use it as a precursor for a longer stay, United are merely looking to recoup a healthier fee for Lindelof in the January or summer window, with the player having been linked with a move away.The publication claims that United believe they could recoup a fee in the region of £15million for Lindelof, which would be a significant decrease on the £30million United spent on the centre-back during Jose Mourinho’s reign as manager.Lindelof has been linked to a move to Italian trio Inter, Juventus and AC Milan in the past.

Amid a defensive injury crisis this season, the Swede has made seven Premier League appearances for United.Among his most notable moments however was an alleged dressing room bust-up, which is said to have taken place in the wake of United’s 3-1 loss to Brighton.The Sun claimed that after the Old Trafford defeat, Bruno Fernandes is said to have laid into midfield colleague Scott Mctominay. Meanwhile, Martinez allegedly had a bust-up with centre-back Lindelof.
