The Swedish defender is the subject of a £38million move from United who are in talks with Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira regarding the potential transfer.
Lindelof, 22, has played with Red Devils star Ibrahimovic in the Sweden national team setup and according to the striker, is ready for action with a club of such standing.
"He is growing. He has a lot of responsibility with the national team now," Ibrahimovic said.
"Is he good enough for United? I think he is ready for the big clubs out there.
"It is up to him what he wants and what the situation says. Whatever he chooses, it will be good for him.
"I know he is hot on the market so let him make the right choice for him."
