Manchester United transfer report Benfica defender Victor Lindelof has ‘agreed terms’ with Red Devils over £35m move

Lindelof has always been linked with a move to the Premier League, and Jose Mourinho has moved to make the the 22-year-old Sweden global his first signing of the summer for a reported £30.75 million.

Lindelof still needs to agree personal terms with United, and the deal is subject to a medical and worldwide clearance.

Meanwhile, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have steered United through tough times last season, and the platform they have established can help Lindelof make a smoother transition as he gets ready to play with his new teammates.

They claim that the Swedish defender will fly to Manchester on Wednesday to complete the transfer following his participation in Swedens fixture against Norway.

The Sweden worldwide has impressed both physically and technically over the past two seasons for the Portuguese giants, winning back-to-back Liga titles and this season's Taca de Portugal.

If these reports are accurate then it looks as though Mourinho is closing in on his first major signing of the summer and Lindelof should prove to be an excellent long-term signing for the Red Devils.

Manchester United have now officially confirmed the signing of Benfica defender Victor Lindelof as he is their first new signing of the summer.

Details with regard to a transfer fee and the length of the contract which Lindelof has agreed to have yet to emerge.

Reported target Romelu Lukaku appears close to leaving Everton for former club Chelsea while links to Torino striker Andrea Belotti continue.

He is expected to move to Old Trafford for £35million.
