Lindelof roars into Carrington for medical

When one piece of footage of Lindelöf, on worldwide duty for Sweden, started doing the rounds on social media, it didn't take long before some United fans were poking fun at the pair.

This has been a transfer long in gestation.

The Swiss was linked to the Red Devils for most of 2016/17, and will strengthen a rearguard that has been ravaged by injuries.

The newspaper are reporting that Smalling has recently changed agents in a bid to help him secure a move away from Old Trafford. He joined the Portuguese giant in 2012, initially playing in the club's youth system before graduating to the first team in the autumn of 2013.

Swedish website Aftonbladet published images of the 22-year-old defender being driven into United's training base where he is expected to finalise his switch from Benfica.

Lindelof can count Zlatan Ibrahimovic, for one, among his admirers.

The two clubs have agreed a fee widely reported to be £35m for the center-back, meaning only personal terms and a medical remains before he can be officially confirmed.

Since joining from Västerås SK in the summer of 2012 he's made 73 first team appearances for Benfica with his performances subsequently earning his 12 worldwide caps.

"Is he good enough for United? I think he is ready for the big clubs out there." while also praising the "great things he's doing with Benfica." at the time.

However, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that Jose might be considering him for the holding position.

We estimate his value will be around the same as his future United teammates Bailly and Rojo (both £3.5m) were valued at the beginning of last season.
