Benfica reportedly inform Manchester United that Victor Lindelof will cost the English club 'in excess of £25m' in the January transfer window.

Manchester United have reportedly been told that they will have to pay 'in excess of £25m' in order to land Benfica defender Victor Lindelof in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old, who has been personally recommended to Man United by fellow Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last couple of months.

According to Sky Sports News, the centre-back is Jose Mourinho's leading transfer target ahead of the winter window and upon contacting Benfica, the English club learned that Lindelof will not be allowed to leave Portugal for less than £25m.

Lindelof joined Benfica from Vasteras SK in 2012 and initially represented the Portuguese side's B team, before stepping into the first-team picture in 2015. Last summer, the Sweden international extended his contract with the Portuguese giants until the summer of 2020.
