Man Utd agree to sign Swedish defender Lindelof

Vasteras reportedly felt they were entitled to 20 percent of any transfer fee, which the Daily Mirror claimed prevented United from completing a deal for the player in January.

"We've got young Keane who 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". Victor Lindelof is still set to agree personal terms and pass a medical which is most at times a formality.

United have reached an agreement to sign Victor Lindelof from Benfica for 35million euros.

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

The 22-year-old is now away on worldwide duty with the Sweden squad but the newspaper claims he will undergo his medical next week, presumably after the World Cup qualifier against Norway next Tuesday night. He has won the league and cup with Benfica and done well in the Champions League.

The Portuguese stopper has spent time on loan at Rochdale in 2015 and impressed for Belenenses while on a similar deal last season.

The Swiss was linked to the Red Devils for most of 2016/17, and will strengthen a rearguard that has been ravaged by injuries.

Now what is left, which is not a very hard task as record has shown, will be to impress under Mourinho and Manchester United.

United also want to bring Fabinho of Monaco and Ivan Perisic of Internazionale to Old Trafford this summer, and they have been making good progress on both deals.
