Victor Lindelof will attempt to become the next great Manchester United defender after completing his big-money switch from Benfica earlier this month.

Many top centre-backs have plied their trade at Old Trafford over the years, such as Jaap Stam, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

But attention will not just be on how Sweden ace Lindelof compares to those United icons but also on his stunning fiancee Maja Nilsson, who is set to join her partner in Manchester.

Here's what we know about Lindelof's love...


Maja works in marketing and writes for Swedish blog Femme, recently penning a guide about Lisbon - the home of Lindelof's former club Benfica.

She is a big user of Instagram and Twitter and it is from here that Maja regularly expresses her support for Lindelof and his career.

Maja was often seen at Benfica games during Lindelof's five-and-a-half-year, trophy-laden spell with the Portuguese giants, too.

Following Lindelof's departure to United, she posted a heartfelt farewell to Benfica supporters, writing: "I just want to take a moment and thank all of the benfiquistas out there.

"You are truly amazing and I am so happy that you were the ones teaching me what true fans and love for a club really means.

"Thank you for all of your unconditionally love and for letting us borrow your amazing city Lisboa for these past years.

"I will always look back at the time in Lisbon and Benfica with so much love.

"Thanks for everything. Have a nice day. And Manchester, I will see you in August. Can't wait."

Maja has also been a regular source of amusement for Sweden and Benfica fans due to the hilarious stories she shares about Lindelof.

"The other night, Victor insisted that I take a sleeping pill," she tweeted in November of last year. "The day after I learned that he then stayed up all night playing Call of Duty."

She added disbelievingly: "He drugged me for COD."


Maja announced on Instagram earlier in June that she and Lindelof were now engaged after he popped the question while they were holidaying together in the Maldives.

She shared several pictures of their pair's fancy holiday in the tropical nation as well as the flashy ring which Lindelof no doubt splashed out on.

In one post, Maja wrote: “Ready to be Mrs Lindelof.”

Fellow Man Utd defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling wedded with their partners earlier this summer.

Jones married Kaya Hall in Nether Alderley, Cheshire in June before Smalling followed suit by tying the knot with Sam Cooke just days later.
