After arriving in a £31million move from Benfica, the Swedish centre-back is likely to slot in alongside Eric Bailly at the back, report the Manchester Evening News .
His arrival will likely lead to one of United’s existing defenders moving on, but Lindelof is also hoping to have an impact at the other end of the pitch.
That’s because he sees himself as a free-kick specialist.
Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata are all likely to be competing for set piece duties next term, but Lindelof is keen to throw his own hat into the ring.
He told MUTV: “I’m quite good at them so if I get an opportunity to take a free-kick, I think I’ll be there.”
Lindelof is set to meet up with his new teammates on July 8, when the squad reconvenes at Carrington ahead of the US pre-season tour.
