Victor Lindelof’s Likely Squad Number at Manchester United Revealed

Victor Lindelof’s Likely Squad Number at Manchester United Revealed

Swedish defender Victor Lindelof has finally sealed his move to Manchester United, and when you look at things closely, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out which number he’ll wear.

The 22-year-old completed a transfer worth £30.7 million from Benfica yesterday, after being linked with the Red Devils ever since the January transfer window.

Lindelof’s usual squad number for the Portuguese side – as well as his national side – is 14, which he chose to wear specifically during Euro 2016 last summer.

But Jesse Lingard currently wears 14, and has done since Jose Mourinho arrived at the club in 2016.

It seems very unlikely that Lingard would be asked to hand over the jersey, and with the No.2 shirt free – which Lindelof has worn for Sweden previously – it seems more than likely he’ll wear that in the Premier League next season.

Of course, we have absolutely no idea if he’ll definitely take No.2 – he could shock us all by taking number 56 – but it’s as good an insight we can offer you at this point.
