All that's left is for the center-back to agree to personal terms with the club.

United was thought to be in for the 23-year-old but the Manchester Evening News claims Matic, the Chelsea enforcer, is more likely as Mourinho seeks a way to release Paul Pogba's creativity.

Elsewhere, the Independent reports that United are confident a deal can be struck over the next week to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Sweden defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica for £31m (35m euros).

Lindelof is involved in Sweden's friendly global against Norway on Tuesday night and is expected to fly straight to Manchester after the game, where he will undergo a medical before the official confirmation of his arrival comes from the Old Trafford club. In 2016, he was one of the best defenders in the division, delivering a string of impressive and consistent displays.

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

Scicchitano confirmed that at no point during this time did any of the fraternity members attempt to render aid or call 911. Jim Piazza held his head in his hands and sobbed as prosecutors showed pictures of his son in the hospital.

That all changed less than 24 hours later as Manchester United announced his signing.

United conceded just 29 goals last season, good for second-fewest in the Premier League, but Mourinho has always prided himself on having an impenetrable defense.

Lindelof has always been a target for United manager Jose Mourinho.

After three years he moved up to the A team and has not looked back since, winning three Portuguese league titles, playing in the Champions League and making his global debut against Turkey in March 2016.

The Premier League is obviously a step-up from the Portuguese top flight, but Seb Larsson has tipped his compatriot to be able to cope. Victor Lindelof has proven himself for Benfica throughout his 5 seasons there and it is little wander he is also a favorite in the Swedish national team.
