The journalist for Swedish paper Aftonbladet also compared the Benfica centre back to Barcelona superstar Gerard Pique.
Lindelof is poised to complete a £38m move from the Portuguese side to Manchester United when the window opens on January 1.
“David Luiz but without all the drama”
Patrik Brenning on Victor Lindelof
The Swede played his last game for Benfica last night ahead of the transfer and Brening is a big fan.
He told the Manchester Evening News: “Who does he play like? Hard to compare but maybe Gerard Pique, or David Luiz but without all the drama.
“Good with the ball, likes to play it forward but still a very good defender.
“I don’t think Victor has the same psychical abilities as [Nemanja] Vidic and therefore plays a bit different.
“I would describe Victor as more of a modern centre-back than Vidic was.
“Can he partner Eric Bailly? I think he could play with any type of player as he is very [good] all-round.”
