Manchester United and Manchester City are already active in the transfer window as both clubs look to reinforce the squad and challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Few days back, the Red Devils confirmed (via official website) that they reached an agreement with Benfica over the transfer of Swedish defender Victor Lindelof.
Now, after agreeing personal terms, getting international clearance and completing the medical, Manchester United finally sealed (MUFC) and announced the signing (yesterday evening) of the highly rated central defender.
The official website has not disclosed the fee paid but reports (Daily Mail) suggest that United have secured his signing for 30.7million pounds ($39million). He has become the most expensive defender in the Old Trafford club’s history by overtaking Rio Ferdinand.

As far as the personal terms are concerned, the former Vasteras defender has signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils with an option to extend for a further year. His wages are still not known for now.
Jose Mourinho was delighted with the capture of Lindelof and stated (MUFC):
“Victor is a very talented young player, who has a great future ahead of him at United”
The 22-year-old star helped Benfica win the Primeira Liga title in the last campaign and we expect him to partner Eric Bailly in the central defense under the management of the Portuguese boss.
