Benfica defender Victor Lindelof has fuelled suggestions that he will join Manchester United next month after signing the English club’s shirt in his Swedish hometown on Friday afternoon.
It has been widely claimed that Man United have agreed a £38m deal for the Benfica defender, who will move to Old Trafford during the January transfer window.
Suggestions that Lindelof is indeed on his way to Manchester have strengthened after the Swede happily posed with a Man United supporter in a picture on social media.

Lindelof joined Benfica from Vasteras SK in 2012 and initially represented the Portuguese side’s B team, before stepping into the first-team picture in 2015. Last summer, the Sweden international extended his contract with Benfica until the summer of 2020.
