Manchester United on Wednesday completed the signing of Victor Lindelof from Portuguese champions Benfica.
The Swedish defender was signed on a four-year contract with the option of extending the deal by another year.
“Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Victor Lindelof from Benfica from July 1, 2017,” the Premier League club said on their website.
“The 22-year-old Swedish international centre-back is a versatile defender and will make his debut on the summer tour of the USA in July.”
Lindelof, who Benfica said would join United for a fee of 35 million euros ($39.32 million), is manager Jose Mourinho’s first close-season signing after winning the Europa League in May to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
