I signed new Man Utd contract without looking at it – Lindelof

Victor Lindelof claims he didn’t even look at the contract he was signing when he renewed his deal at Manchester United.

The Sweden international bagged himself a new deal at Old Trafford in September with the fresh terms tying him to United until the summer of 2024.

Despite struggling to reach top form at Man Utd in his first season, following his move from Benfica in 2017, he is now a vital member of United‘s squad under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

On signing a new deal, Lindelof told the club’s official podcast: “When they offered me a new contract it was very, very easy for me. I never really looked at [the contract]. I just took up the pen and signed it.

“I’m very happy here and I want to be here for many more years to come and I know that I can become a better player here.

“I know the club can help me and I want to stay here for more years and hopefully we can win some trophies as well. That’s my main goal.”

Lindelof added: “When United wanted to sign me, I think it was in January [2017]. Things didn’t happen, but I knew they wanted me.

“I wanted to focus on my football, because I wanted to win the title and the cups and everything [with Benfica]. I’ve always been mentally strong, which I think is why I was able to carry on.

“I just carried on, kept working hard and told my agent, ‘As soon as the season is at an end, you can come back to me and tell me what’s happening.’

“In those last few months of the season, we won every game in the league and the Portuguese Cup as well. It was a great end for me to win those trophies.

“After the last game, my agent called me straight away and explained the situation [with United].”
