Victor Lindelof is in the building. Manchester United Football Club agreed a deal to sign the talented 22-year-old, and now, the first pictures of him arriving at Carrington have surfaced via social media.
Many thought that today would indeed be the day the ‘Iceman’ made his entrance, because last night saw the end of the international break, in which Lindelof was an unused substitute for Sweden’s 1-1 draw against Norway.
Check out the snap of Lindelof arriving below:

Complete with new club Chevvy, Lindelof rocked up at Carrington early in the morning, most probably to complete his Manchester United medical. The Swede will become Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the summer, as the gaffer looks to bolster his defensive options.
With a bit of luck, today could well be the day that the young man signs on the dotted line and officially confirms his move to the Theatre of Dreams.
United need help defensively. Both Phil Jones and Chris Smalling were poor for large parts of the season, and although Eric Bailly was incredible, the man from the Ivory Coast needs help. Who knows, this could be the start of a centre-back pairing that has the potential to last well over a decade.
