Victor Lindelof has arrived at Manchester United for a medical as part of his transfer from Benfica.
The 22-year-old was due to undergo the examination at the club’s Carrington training base after flying into Manchester on Wednesday morning.
The Portuguese club have confirmed United will pay £30.7m (€35m) to sign the Sweden international, with a further £8.8m (€10m) payable based on performance incentives.
Sky Sports News HQ revealed in May that Jose Mourinho was planning on signing a central defender this summer and had identified Lindelof, Michael Keane and Virgil van Dijk as his three main targets.
United have had a long-standing interest in Lindelof, but decided against making a move for him in January due to the upturn in their form and the return to fitness of a number of their central defenders.
Lindelof has been on international duty with Sweden and was an unused substitute for Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Scandinavian rivals Norway.
