Manchester United have welcomed new signing Victor Lindelof to Old Trafford from Benfica
United announced the signing of the Sweden international from on Wednesday evening in a deal worth £40 million, with the 22-year-old signing a five-year deal.
Lindelof joins Jones, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo in the United defensive pack as Jose Mourinho shuffles his pack ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League season.
“We’re Manchester United, we’re going to attract the best players and the biggest players,” Jones told Sky Sports.
“It would be a strange summer if we weren’t signing players like that. Competition is always good.
“I’ve spoken to the manager [Jose Mourinho]. He just asks how you’re feeling, how you’re doing – just a normal conversation between player and manager.

“He’s a good man-manager, he’s like that with all the players.”
Lindelof becomes United’s first signing of the summer transfer window, costing £30.9m up front, with the remainder of the balance to be handed over if certain agreed targets are met during the course of the defender’s stay in Manchester.
The centre-back, who played 73 times for Benfica and earned 12 caps for Sweden, leaves the Primeira Liga side with three league titles, two national cups, a league cup and a Portuguese Super Cup to his name
