The Swedish defender will allegedly play his last game for Benfica on Wednesday before moving to Old Trafford next month.
Benfica boss Rui Vitoria insists the club will cope with the player leaving as he has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in a deal which could be worth £38m.
Man United have sent scouts to watch Lindelof in action over the course of the season and Jose Mourinho watched him play during Sweden’s 2-1 defeat to France in November.
Mourinho’s first transfer window at the club has proven his ability to lure anyone to Old Trafford, attracting the likes of Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic without Champions League football to offer.
He moved to Benfica from Swedish side Vasteras in 2012 and could be set to play in England as Mourinho claimed he’s calm about the prospect of making changes to his squad in the January transfer window.
It is understood a deal has been agreed between both parties and it seems it’s only a matter of time before we see the Swede alongside international team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a United shirt.
