Lindelof arrives in Manchester for United medical

Lindelof arrives in Manchester for United medical

"We've got young Keane has done exceptionally well at Burnley, we're looking to bring him back at Manchester United for £28m, all of a sudden Lindelof is 30 [million]", Wilkins told Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old centre back has been a long-standing target at United, having flourished in recent seasons with Portuguese giants Benfica.

However, Benfica argued that the agreements - which included a €250,000 payment after Lindelof had made 10 first-team starts - expired when he signed a new contract in 2015, prompting the Swedish club to make a formal complaint to Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Lindelof has reportedly flown into Manchester straight after Sweden's friendly with Norway last night to complete the move. The finer details of the transfer - a medical, worldwide clearance and contract terms - will be completed in the coming days, the club said.

Since joining from Västerås SK in the summer of 2012 he's made 73 first team appearances for Benfica with his performances subsequently earning his 12 global caps.

Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are set to depart this summer, and Mourinho wants to replace them with Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata and Torino's Andrea Belotti.

With the player expected at Carrington on Wednesday morning, fans remain hopeful that a first unveiling of the summer could take place before the end of the day. Even though Manchester United managed to finish the Premier league with the second best defensive record, it appears that Mourinho is not entirely happy with his defensive unit.

That is said to have peaked the interest of Everton, West Ham and West Brom, all of whom are thought to be keeping an eye on the situation as they chase a new centre-back.

A medical is also being planned for him this week, with Mourinho bolstering his squad quickly ahead of next season. The last season at Benfica, during which he played 47 times, was his first campaign as a starter.
