While United has also signed former Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and other top Premier League clubs have made big signings like Alexandre Lacazette moving to Arsenal or Mohammed Salah moving to Liverpool, Lindelof's transfer stands out as the most impactful of them all for a very unique reason.

The Swedish club is believed to have received £3.6m as part of the deal, according to The Mirror. Chairwoman Christina Liffner said in an interview to Reuters that the club can look into building an academy.

Lindelof joined Man United from Portuguese giants Benfica in this summer's transfer window, and the centre-back made his debut for the Red Devils during their 5-2 win over Los Angeles Galaxy at the StubHub Center.

"My first week has been very good".

The next was when he played his third under-21 match for Sweden, followed by the third which was when he played 10 senior games for the Portugal international side. The 22-year-old has single-handedly solved many problems for the third-tier Swedish club, who were recently on the brink of bankruptcy.

"It is the first game and I am really looking forward to playing more games".

Money doesn't appear to be an issue for club's in England these days.

"In the end we negotiated a new contract and there is a confidentiality clause in it, but everyone understands that we had to go down a bit".

With add-ons, the buying club has to give up some of their future profit, but it's a way to reduce the initial cost. There of course is some risk as in Lindelof's case, it can provide the original club with a much bigger payday than agreeing to a transfer fee that comes upfront. "We can put aside that much in a special account that can only be used for that".

"We have trained for five days and in these five days we trained for two days in the relation to this system [three at the back]", Mourinho said at the weekend.
