Man Utd have Moved in to Finally Agree $65million Star Signing – Not James

Manchester United already have an over-crowded central defense with stars like Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Blind and Bailly around.
Under the management of Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils currently have the second best defense in the Premier League having conceded 24 goals. Spurs have only conceded 22 goals.
Still, the Portuguese manager is ready to further reinforce his back line and once again Swedish international and Benfica star Victor Lindelof is in the lime light.
The 22-year-old central defender was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the winter transfer window but it did not happen. Now, according to Mirror, Man United have moved in again and opened fresh talks to secure his signature in a deal worth 40 million pounds.
Mirror claim that Benfica are demanding a fee of 50 million pounds ($65million) i.e. Lindelof’s release clause but the British giants are confident that they can agree a lower fee.
The former Vasteras star has been a key member of the Primeira Liga side in the past two seasons. This season, in 43 games, he has been rock solid at the back and has also scored one goal as Benfica sit on top of the league table, 3 points above rivals Porto.
Lindelof is mainly a center half but he can also be utilized in the full back positions if needed. As per the provided Mirror link, United are also keen on signing Marquinhos from Paris Saint-Germain.
In your opinion, should United sign Marquinhos or Lindelof?
