Sweden defender Victor Lindelof will complete a £35million move to Manchester United on Wednesday, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has apparently said he will fight for his United team-mates and fans, while on international duty with Sweden.

The Sun and The Mirror report that a deal will be done next week after the player returns from Norway, where Sweden will play on Tuesday.

He will then “fly straight to Manchester to have his medical before wrapping up a five-year deal”.

The Sun quote a source close to the player: “It’s a done deal. There are some very minor things to wrap up and of course the medical.

“He hasn’t wanted to allow the move to distract him from Sweden duty but he will be flying straight to Manchester after the game in Oslo on Tuesday and then undergoing his medical.”

Lindelof, who has won 12 caps, made 47 appearance for Benfica this term, and has long since been linked with a move to United.

He is contracted until 2021 and although he has been tight-lipped over his future, he is believed to be close to signing for Jose Mourinho’s men.
