And Lindelof was equally as pleased to have finally sealed his switch to Old Trafford.
He told the club’s official website: “I am thrilled to be joining Manchester United. I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there.

“But I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League at Old Trafford and for Jose Mourinho.

“I’m keen to get started and make my contribution to the team’s efforts to win more trophies.”
