Yesterday, we covered a report (via O Jogo) claiming that the representatives of the Old Trafford club monitored the performances of Lindelof and Semedo during Benfica’s clash against Tondela at the weekend.
As per the provided Mirror link, Antonio Conte is ready to battle with Jose Mourinho and has made Lindelof his top priority for summer.
