Manchester United reach agreement for Sweden international

Manchester United have reportedly finalised the long-awaited transfer of defender Victor Lindelof from Portuguese giants Benfica.

Unfortunately for him, the credibility of those adjectives became more scrutinized and questioned the moment he put his signature on Manchester United’s appointment letter. Continue reading SUNDERLAND’S FALL: ANOTHER BLACK FEATHER TO MOYES’ CAP
