Manchester United has officially exercised the one-year extension clause in Victor Lindelof’s contract, signaling their intention to keep the defender at the club until 2025.
Man United legend Gary Neville has openly said that he is not pleased with the club’s choice to extend Victor Lindelof’s contract for an additional year.
Neville is of the opinion that, particularly with the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the club should embark on a new chapter. He emphasized the need to convey to current players that an elevated level of performance is required to secure their future at the club.
On X, Neville wrote, “If United are looking to renew Lindelof and Varane (on reduced terms), I’m worried. We have to start afresh as much as possible. Whilst these two aren’t bad players by any stretch, a message must be sent to everyone inside and outside of the club that it’s not going to tolerate the levels over the last few years.”
Erik ten Hag’s team, having secured only one victory in their last five Premier League matches, currently occupies the seventh position in the league standings. Their upcoming fixture is an FA Cup third-round encounter against Wigan Athletic scheduled for January 8th.
