Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is reportedly set for a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Fenerbahce.

The legendary Portuguese boss recently landed a new role with the Turkish giants after spending months in the cold.

Mourinho had been unemployed for close to half a year prior to his Fenerbahce move, having been sacked by AS Roma back in January.

According to reports, the former Premier League manager has already embarked on laying his blueprint at the club.

Sportskeeda claims that a deal is already in the works to have Mourinho reunite with Lindelof at Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

It is understood that the Yellow Canaries have opened talks with United to discuss a deal that could see the Swedish defender move the other way.

Reports in Turkey suggest that the Super Lig side have prepared an €8 million offer for the center-back, who is reportedly excited with the prospect of playing under Mourinho once again.

Lindelof is facing an uncertain future at Man United

The development comes at a time when the former Benfica ace is facing an uncertain future with the Red Devils, having endured an injury-laden 2023/24 campaign.

The 29-year-old has spent almost seven years at Old Trafford, having been signed by Mourinho in 2017 when the manager was still in charge of the Premier League side.

Sky Sports reports that United splashed out £30.7m to sign the Sweden international, with Mourinho saying at the time that he knew the qualities of the defender.

Lindelof has gone on to make over 250 appearances for Man United, winning multiple trophies, including the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup, under current boss, Erik ten Hag.
