Sebastian Larsson has backed Victor Lindelof to succeed at Manchester United.
Man United confirmed a fee of around €35million for his services and he’ll become the club’s first signing after completing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
They played alongside each other in Sweden’s 2-1 victory over France on Friday and Larsson believes the 22-year-old will shine in the Premier League.
Speaking about his move, Larsson insists he has all the right attributes to impress Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
“The major thing is his quality is undoubted and he has his feet on the ground,” he said.
“It goes without saying the Premier League and England is a completely different culture and he will have to handle that.
“And as long as people give him a bit of time to adjust, he will ultimately succeed at United.
“You cannot deny his qualities. He has burst on to the scene and done superbly at club and international level.
“I have been so impressed by him whenever I have played with him. He is an important player for us in the Sweden team now and that shows maturity.
“But not only does he have the quality on the pitch but he has a calm and sensible head on him as well. He is a humble guy and has a good future ahead of him.”
Lindelof and Larsson are preparing for Sweden’s away friendly against Norway on Tuesday, and he’ll then be free to fly to Manchester to finalise a deal.
