    Juventus join race for Benfica star Lindelof

    Manchester United are still looking for defensive reinforcement, and it looks like they’ve found one from Portuguese champions Benfica.
    The Red Devils are being linked to Swedish defender Viktor Lindelof, according to a report from local newspaper A Bola.
    They’re not the only ones interested in him, Chelsea and PSG also long known to follow the 22-year-old.
    And then there’s Juventus, who have often sent their scouts to the Estadio da Luz in order to check Lindelof out.
    As promising as he is, Lindelof is still tied to a €30 million release clause, which could well be too expensive, as we pointed out in a recent column after Napoli disintegrated Benfica’s back line.
    The Swede only made 15 Liga Sagres appearances last season, though he’s been a consistent starter (9 games) this season. He's also been at the heart of a transfer battle between Inter and AC Milan. 
    Lindelof starred for Sweden in a recent 3-0 win over Bulgaria, powering in one of his side’s goals in a 3-0 win.
