Central defender to move to Old Trafford from Benfica on 1 July

Manchester United have made defender Victor Lindelof their first signing of the summer transfer window. 

The 22-year-old centre-back has agreed a four-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months, to move from Benfica for an undisclosed fee.

"I'm looking forward to playing in the Premier League at Old Trafford and for Jose Mourinho," Lindelof told manutd.com. "I'm keen to get started and make my contribution to the team’s efforts to win more trophies."

The Sweden international, who can also play on the right of defence, won a Portuguese league and cup double in 2016/17. 

Lindelof will complete his move on 1 July and is set to make his debut for the club on their pre-season tour of the USA, which gets under way against LA Galaxy on 15 July.
