Man United reach agreement to sign Benfica defender Lindelof

Lindelof is involved in Sweden's friendly worldwide against Norway on Tuesday night and is expected to fly straight to Manchester after the game, where he will undergo a medical before the official confirmation of his arrival comes from the Old Trafford club.

With a fee agreed subject to global clearance, a medical and personal terms, Lindelof will become the club's most expensive defender, eclipsing Eric Bailly, who joined from Villarreal a year ago for £30 million (S$52.8 million).

Manchester United have reportedly emerged as frontrunners to sign AS Monaco player Fabinho as the Reds look to bolster their midfield ahead of the new Premier League season.

Manchester United are on the verge of completing their first signing of the summer with Sweden global Victor Lindelof agreeing to a reported £30.75 million deal last week.

The club hope to make a formal announcement he has become a United player within the next 24 hours as they try to wrap up their transfer business early.

Some United fans may feel mildly disgruntled to see the club snap-up Lindelof instead of former academy graduate Michael Keane, but fans can be rest assured the young defender is the real-deal.

The two clubs have agreed a fee widely reported to be £35m for the center-back, meaning only personal terms and a medical remains before he can be officially confirmed.

Jose Mourinho has moved quickly at the start of the summer 2017 transfer window to address Manchester United's defensive concerns. He won three Primeira Liga titles and was selected for the national team for Euro 2016 in France.

"It goes without saying the Premier League and England is a completely different culture and he will have to handle that".
