Manchester United have rejected an offer from Inter Milan for defender Victor Lindelof, as coach Erik ten Hag still considers the Swede to be part of the plans for the rest of the season.

This according to UK tabloid the Daily Mail, who report that the Red Devils coach would have no intention of letting the 28-year-old go, even though the player is increasingly out of favour in Manchester.

Lindelof is one of the main names who Inter have lined up as a possible last-minute replacement for Milan Skriniar should the former Sampdoria defender be sold to Paris Saint-Germain before the January transfer window closes.

The 28-year-old has not featured often for United this season, but in the view of ten Hag, remains an important player in the depth chart.

The Red Devils are competing on four fronts this season, and the coach does not want to be deprived of a player who he still trusts to fill in at the back when other defenders need a rest.

Accordingly, the Daily Mail reports, ten Hag would have no intention of sanctioning a sale of the former Benfica defender before the end of the January window tomorrow.
