Jorge Mendes, and the president of Benfica, have flown to Manchester to complete the deal of Victor Lindelof to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are closing in on finally getting their man, who they have been tracking since summer. The young defender has impressed one and all with his performances, and is termed as a star of the future by his fans in Portugal.

According to O Jogo, Vieira, the President of Benfica, has flown to United to seal the transfer of his player to the Red Devils.

The Portuguese club are reportedly holding out for around £42m for the Swede, with £37m of that being paid up front.

With Chelsea and Juventus in the race to get hold of the young center-back, Manchester United seem to be clear leaders to land their target, and are doing so at a quick pace.

With Bailly out for a while due to an injured knee, and then off to the African Cup of Nations to represent Ivory Coast, United are desperate to get a solid center-back in their ranks by next month.

However, their defence seems to be well handled by Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at present, as their performances have helped the Red Devils win 3 league games in a row and gather some momentum.

But an injury to either of them means Mourinho will need reinforcements, and that is where Lindelof, a two-time Primeira Liga champion, will come into the frame. The deal is inevitable and around the corner – when and how much are the only questions that remain.
