The United website has confirmed the club has agreed a deal to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, subject to a medical examination, international clearance and personal terms. No further details were offered. The BBC report however that United will pay a £30 million fee for the Swedish 22 year old.
Jose Mourinho’s team is shaping up nicely for next year, it seems.
