Official: Victor Lindelof Joins Manchester United For £30.7m

Victor Lindelof has completed his move from Benfica to Manchester United. The 22 years old will become a United player on 1 July and has signed a four-year contract, with an option for a further year.

Lindelof had his medical at United's training complex on Wednesday and Benfica have confirmed the Premier League side will pay £30.7m (€35m) to sign the centre-back, with a further £8.8m (€10m) payable based on performance incentives. United say they expect Lindelof to make his debut for the club during July's pre-season tour of the USA.
Lindelof said “I am thrilled to be joining Manchester United. I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there. But I'm looking forward to playing in the Premier League at Old Trafford and for Jose Mourinho. I'm keen to get started and make my contribution to the team's efforts to win more trophies. Of course there are some great players here in my position, I'm here to do my best to try to help the team as much as I can and it's always good to have other good players around you. When you have that, you get better as well. I think every move means you have to adapt to a new environment but I feel comfortable in myself. I trust myself and it's going to be tough but I'm looking forward to it. I always had a dream of coming here to play in the Premier League so, for me, it's a dream come true.
