Manchester United FC reach agreement to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof

Manchester United FC reach agreement to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof”

We are pleased to announce we have reached agreement with Benfica for the transfer of Victor Lindelof.

The Sweden worldwide could cost United up to €45 million (£39.6m) and has signed a four-year contract, with the option for a fifth season.

"I was in Benfica for five years so for me to leave of course it was not a tough decision but a hard decision because I was happy there and I developed a lot as a player", Lindelof told MUTV.

Manchester United will have to overcome their bogey fixtures and important games if they are to be successful in their hunt for the league title, though, and with the 17/18 fixtures being released today, here's a look at games that could define Mourinho's season at Old Trafford... "I'm keen to get started and contribute to the team's efforts to win more trophies". "I know that our fantastic group of players will welcome him as one of us", he was quoted as saying by the official website of Manchester United.

He moved to Benfica in December 2011, initially representing the club at youth and B levels. With Benfica, Lindelof won three Primeira Liga titles and was named to the UEFA Champions League "Breakthrough XI" in 2016.

A senior Sweden debut arrived in March of previous year and he went on to represent the country at Euro 2016, starting all three matches.

The 22-year-old began his career in midfield and has also featured at right-back, but he believes he is best at the heart of defence, an area where he must now compete with the likes of Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind for a starting berth.

Manchester United head into the new season fresh from winning the Europa League and the EFL Cup.
