"You all know him very well in the past, he's always the same".

"I am ready. I don't know if he is ready".

Daily Express reports that United are interested in bringing Luiz to Manchester as summer signing, Victor Lindelof despite his improvement in recent months, has not really lived up to the hype sorrounding his arrival at the club.
