Victor Lindelof is all set to join Premier League giants Manchester United, according to reports ​in Portugal.

The Benfica star, 22, was on international duty, featuring in Sweden’s 2-1 win over France on Saturday and hence he didn’t wanted to disrupt his performance for that game by signing the deal beforehand.

Leading Portuguese sports newspaper Record reported that a deal for Lindelof is all but done, with the Benfica centre-back expected to join Manchester United on Wednesday.

Manchester United have agreed a €40m transfer fee with Benfica. The first €35m of that fee will be paid up​ front and the remaining €5m will depend on performance related target.

The Swedish international has long been linked to a Manchester United move. The centre-back almost moved to Old Trafford in January but Jose Mourinho decided to wait until summer to sign him.
