The Red Devils, according to Sky sports, will pay the Portuguese champions £30.7m to sign the Sweden international.

Meanwhile, Lindelof has yet to agree personal terms, with his proposed move to the red part of Manchester also tied to a medical and international clearance.

“Manchester United is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Benfica for the transfer of Victor Lindelof, subject to a medical examination, international clearance and personal terms,” a United statement read.

“A further announcement will be made once the transfer is complete.”

The 22-year-old Portuguese joined Benfica from Swedish side Vasteras SK in 2011. He has since played 73 times for the first-team, helping them win the Portuguese league title on three occasions.
