A move for Victor Lindelof could be back on in one of the most unpredictable transfer deals of the transfer window, claim the Telegraph. The Swedish 22-year-old has been left out of Benfica’s matchday squad for their Portuguese Super League Cup tie against FC Pacos de Ferreira, sparking fresh speculation of an exit.
Yesterday, reports claimed that he would not be making the move after all with Jose Mourinho reluctant to be forced into a bidding war over the youngster with Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo in fine form in the current starting eleven with the likes of Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling out through injury.
After rumours of a loan move to West Ham, Slaven Bilic has seemingly confirmed that Marcus Rashford will not be leaving Manchester United despite not starting a Premier League game since November. Bilic said:
“No way. Rashford is very valuable for Manchester United. There’s no way to get him. They have many games, four competitions. He’s playing, so no way.”
The 19-year-old enjoyed a superb breakthrough last season but has struggled for regular game time under Jose Mourinho’s management this season with Zlatan Ibrahimovic preferred up front.
The club are also keen to secure the services of another promising youngster with Livingston’s 17-year-old sensation Matthew Knox invited for a third trial at the club next week ahead of a potential £150,000 move for the striker, say the Daily Record.
The striker has already featured in seven first team games for his club in Scottish League One but is yet to score and has also made two appearances for Scotland under 17s as he has been on a meteoric rise, with Rangers also having monitored his progress before having a number of transfer bids rejected by his current club.
