Manchester United agree to sign Swedish defender Victor Lindelof

Former England global Ray Wilkins claims new Manchester United signing Victor Lindelof "has done nothing" at Benfica.

Lindelof, 22, is a Sweden worldwide who has played 12 times for his country, scoring once.

United have agreed a £31million deal to sign the Sweden global centre-back and the Old Trafford club say the deal is now subject to worldwide clearance, the agreement of personal terms and a medical, which will take place next week.

The move for the Swedish centre-back, 22, is subject to the player completing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Jose Mourinho has doubts over whether Smalling is good enough and is set to make the England global available for transfer at as little as £15m.

Fabinho's wife Rebeca Tavares is reported to have dropped a hint on social media regarding the deal by liking an Instagram post by a United fan asking Fabinho to join the Red Devils this summer.

VICTOR LINDELOF has arrived in England for his medical ahead of completing his £35million move to Manchester United. The Benfica defender was very impressive during the 2016/17 campaign and drew attention from some of Europe's best clubs.

The Independent claims that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has drawn up a five-man wish-list for the ongoing transfer window.

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 worldwide caps.

That all changed less than 24 hours later as Manchester United announced his signing.

After three years he moved up to the A team and has not looked back since, winning three Portuguese league titles, playing in the Champions League and making his global debut against Turkey in March 2016.
