Manchester United are on the verge of confirming their first summer signing with latest report suggesting the Red Devils are set to complete the £35m signing of Benfica defender Victor Lindelof on Wednesday according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, with a move said to be close in January before it was seemingly put on hold.

The Sweden international will fly into Manchester this week after leaving the national team camp as he is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

It’s claimed that the commanding centre-half told friends on Friday night prior to the World Cup qualifier against France that he can’t wait to join “such a massive club” as he insisted that he would “fight for his team and fans”.

Also, a source told the Sun that ‘it’s a done deal’, with Lindelof expected to undergo his medical on Wednesday.
