"Manchester United is a dream come true" - 22-year-old delighted after signing for Red Devils


Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof says he was happy when Jose Mourinho contacted him to move to Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old became the club's first summer signing after joining from Benfica.

He says playing for the Red Devils is a dream come true and that he is already looking forward to making his debut in the English Premier League.

"It feels great to know the coach wants you to finally be here. It makes me very happy," he told MUTV.

"He's [Jose Mourinho is] a great coach and for me to be able to work with him is a great opportunity for me.

"I'd been at Benfica for nearly five years, so for me to leave was of course not a tough decision but a hard decision. I was happy there as I developed a lot as a player but when the opportunity came, it was very easy for me to pick it.

"I think I'm quite a calm player. I like to have the ball at my feet. I think I'm quite good with the ball and at reading the game, and I give my players in front of me quite a calmness knowing I'm back there trying to protect them as well as I can.

"I always had a dream of coming here to play in the Premier League so, for me, it's a dream come true.

"I think every move means you have to adapt to a new environment but I feel comfortable in myself. I trust myself and it's going to be tough but I'm looking forward to it."
