It seems that Manchester United are going to sign Victor Lindelof after all. The transfer saga has dragged on for far too long but reports in the media suggest that the Swedish defender is finally going to be a Red Devil.
The move was mainly delayed because Benfica were reluctant to make a sell-on payment to Lindelof’s former club Vasteras.
However, according to Mirror, that dilemma has been resolved because Vasteras have finally come to an agreement with the Primeira Liga champions.
The 22-year-old defender missed the cup games against Pacos and Vizela but returned to face Vitoria in the league and helped Benfica win the game 2-0 away from home. He has featured in 23 games for the Portuguese giants this season.
He is a versatile star who can play in multiple defensive positions. Victor is mainly a central defender but he can be utilized in the fullback positions and as a defensive midfielder as well.
As per the provided Mirror link, Lindelof will now sign a contract with the Old Trafford club that will make him earn £115,000-a-week, £33million in the next five and a half years. Moreover, he has already been allocated the No.2 shirt.
It will be intriguing to see how Jose Mourinho will line up with Victor Lindelof. In your opinion, who should partner him in Man United’s central defense?
