Still slow as feck though, and more often than Maguire he's seen chasing an attacker only to fall further behind every time. If Maguire at least is able to make contact with the attacker, he has a chance. Lindelof is brushed aside by Martin Ødegaard - which is only fair as Ødegaard is Norwegian, and Lindelöf is Swedish, so there's a natural power discrepancy there.
Lindeloff gets out muscled because his upper body strength isn't the greatest. Nada to do with his speed though. He is faster than Maguire. Just not as strong.

He used to play for ETH at Ajax. So that's like 80% of the criteria we need fulfilled. Additionally, he is on high wages and might or might not be a good fit for our defense. I really don't know why people don't look at this as a potentially perfect transfer. He should be packing his bags and heading to Manchester.

Depends on price really, we shouldn't be giving Bayern their money back. Hopefully we can be sensible and just say he's staying there then if the fee or wages aren't enough. We should've done that with Sancho, Antony, Mount.
