Speaking about his decision to leave Benfica, Lindelof told the club’s official website: “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.“United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and always want to win titles.
