Victor Lindelof becomes a Red Devil!

It hasn’t taken long for Manchester United to splash the cash! United and Portuguese Champions Benfica have agreed on a €35 million deal for the 22 year old defender. 

For his age, Lindelof is already developing into a fine young player. The Swedish youngster has already made 47 appearances, won a league title, two cups and over 10 international caps for Sweden.

It’s clear United and manager Jose Mourinho are looking at long term investments, following the release of 35 year old Swedish star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Zlatan scored 17 goals in the Premier League this season. It left fans in shock, however this recent signing announcement is sure to restore the faith at Old Trafford.

The centre back already has fan created dedicated highlight reels on Youtube. He doesn’t only defend, he can also score stunning goals from a dead ball situation.
