Manchester United fans might enjoy following Victor Lindelof’s girlfriend on Twitter now that he’s one of their players.
The Swedish defender was announced as a United player yesterday after a £31million transfer from Benfica was completed.
That’s exciting enough for Old Trafford supporters, who are keen to see Jose Mourinho strengthen their team this summer so they can challenge for trophies on all fronts next term.
But Lindelof isn’t the only good signing – his girlfriend comes as a bonus too.
Maja Nilsson regularly posts on social media about her relationship with Lindelof and should offer an even more interesting insight into his career now that he’s a United player.
Look at this tweet, to mark yesterday’s signing, for example:

She certainly knows what she’s doing on social media and is particularly entertaining – but she can be serious too. Her lovely message to say goodbye to Benfica fans yesterday was very classy:

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. Obrigada por tudo. Até ja ❤🇵🇹 And Manchester, I will see you in August. Can't wait.
Nilsson usually posts in Swedish, but you might see more English on her timeline now she’ll be living in Manchester alongside Lindelof.
And she seems good friends with the girlfriends of some other Swedish stars, including Celta Vigo’s John Guidetti and Celtic’s Mikael Lustig.
While Lindelof will make United fans happy, we think his girlfriend might just make the £31m free worth it.
