What Was Said
Speaking to the official website, the Swedish defender said: “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 support.
“I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support.”
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, also added: “Victor has established himself here and has become a very important part of our team.
“He brings calmness on the pitch and I can see that he is determined to help this club and to be successful here.

Victor Lindelof – Manchester United Career So Far
Lindelof arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2017, initially signing a four-year contract. During his first season with the club he made 22 appearances in all competitions.
The 25-year-old began to establish himself into the first team in the 2018/19 season. Last season he made 37 appearances in all competitions. Furthermore, he registered his first goal for United midway through the season, during a 2-2 draw with Burnley.
The new contract offers the chance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to develop a partnership between Lindelof and summer signing Harry Maguire. The pair have featured in every minute United have played so far this season. As a result, they will both be looking to grow a partnership that will help them contend at the top of the table.
