Eintracht Frankfurt apparently wanted to bring central defender Victor Lindelöf from Manchester United in the past winter transfer window. As the picture reported, a loan until the end of the season was an issue for the Hessians.
Lindelöf is usually only a substitute for the Red Devils under coach Erik ten Hag and is said to have agreed to a move to the Bundesliga club. Ultimately, however, ten Hag wanted to keep him as an alternative on the defensive and did not release the Swede.
“We’re building on him. All the players in the squad are important and when their time comes, they have to deliver,” said ten Hag last week about Lindelöf’s possible departure.
The 28-year-old, who still has a contract with Manchester until 2024, has made 15 competitive appearances this season. However, he only started four times in the Premier League.
