[Victor Lindelof has signed a new five-year contract at Manchester United, the Premier League club have confirmed] Since the day I arrived at United it has felt like home. I have grown significantly both as a player and as a person in the last two years and for that I am grateful to everyone at the club for their help and support. I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support. I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs. I’m still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club

[Lindelof didn’t look at new Man Utd contract, he just signed it] When they offered me a new contract it was very, very easy for me. I never really looked at [the contract]. I just took up the pen and signed it. I’m very happy here and I want to be here for many more years to come and I know that I can become a better player here. I know the club can help me and I want to stay here for more years and hopefully we can win some trophies as well. That’s my main goal.

[Lindelof did his best to avoid being caught up in the transfer hype, but concedes that he was always hoping to see an agreement reached with United] When United wanted to sign me, I think it was in January [2017]. Things didn’t happen, but I knew they wanted me. I wanted to focus on my football, because I wanted to win the title and the cups and everything [with Benfica]. I’ve always been mentally strong, which I think is why I was able to carry on. I just carried on, kept working hard and told my agent, ‘As soon as the season is at an end, you can come back to me and tell me what’s happening

In those last few months of the season, we won every game in the league and the Portuguese Cup as well. It was a great end for me to win those trophies. After the last game, my agent called me straight away and explained the situation [with United]

[Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof says Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the best player he has ever played with, despite only being team-mates for a matter of months] I’ve played with some really good players but, if I have to pick one, I’ll go for Zlatan. I’ve played with some really good players but, if I have to pick one, I’ll go for Zlatan

[When asked what his favourite moment in a United shirt was, the 25-year-old said] It’s not easy to pick just one moment. I think I would say the best is yet to come. We had a few good moments and have been winning some big games but I haven’t won a title yet. I’ll wait until I win a first title and then I can answer that question.

[Maguire only joined the club from Leicester last summer but is already a key member of the squad and was appointed club captain in January following the sale of Ashley Young] It’s been great playing with Harry a lot this season. It’s very important to play a lot of games together and you learn a lot from each other. The more games you play, the better you get as players and so it’s been great as we’ve been helping each other a lot and getting some good results. I think we’ve been improving lately as well, before the break, we had a lot of clean sheets and performed well. It’s been great but I’ve played with some others as well this season and we have some really good players in that position. It’s always a pleasure to play alongside everyone. But I’ve played with Harry a lot this season and it’s been great.

Of course, Ole is very important for myself and all the players. He’s the boss and makes the decisions on how he wants us to play. He helps us a lot in the daily training and stuff so it’s been great. Hopefully, we can keep improving under him and get some good results in the future. That’s what everyone wants and is working hard for.
