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 global caps.

VICTOR LINDELOF has become Manchester United's first signing of the summer in a £31million deal from Benfica.

It is expected Lindelof and Eric Bailly will be United's primary centre-back pairing in 2017/18.

He could be one of three or four high-profile acquisitions at Old Trafford this summer, with the club also understood to be keen on Alvaro Morata.

The deal is still subject to a medical examination, worldwide clearance and personal terms, United said in a statement.

United had announced over the weekend that a fee, believed to be £30m rising to £35m, was agreed with Benfica.

Lindelof has always been linked with a move to United but he remained tight-lipped about a possible shift ahead of Friday's magnificent 2-1 win for Sweden over France in Stockholm, saying that he had a contract at Benfica he meant to honour.
