The upcoming summer transfer window is likely to prove rather eventful for Jose Mourinho and the Red Devils faithful one way or another. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already been unceremoniously released at Old Trafford, whilst several up and coming stars continue to see their names linked with big money switches to the former Premier League champions.
Emerging Benfica and Sweden centre-back, Victor Lindelöf, is supposedly well on his way to Manchester United…

…leaving many Premier League onlookers rather excited at the prospect of him joining…
Out of all the signings that #mufc will make this summer, something tells me Lindelof will be the most influential for the team nxt season.

Hopefully our other deals don't take too long after Lindelof is done.

Although Lindelöf isn’t guaranteed to become an immediate success among the Premier League…
Ederson signs: City are paying too much for a nobody people haven't heard of.
Lindelof signs: Everyone is an expert on Benfica.

…and many opposing fans will probably see fit to criticise the Swedish centre-back at the first available opportunity…
