A huge plume of smoke wafted across the London skyline and left a burned-out hulk in the working class, multi-ethnic neighborhood. Tiago Etienne, 17, saw three children between the ages of 4 and 5 being dropped from a flat on about the 15th floor.

A medical is also being planned for him this week, with Mourinho bolstering his squad quickly ahead of next season.

Despite his young age, Lindelof already has Champions League experience and tasted domestic glory with Benfica after capturing Primeira Liga titles in each of the last two seasons, as well as three domestic cups since first moving to Portugal in 2012.
