Lindelof arrived at United from Benfica in the summer of 2017 for a fee in the region of £30m and has gone on to make 74 appearances in all competitions for the club.
He said: "Since the day I arrived at United it has felt like home. I have grown significantly both as a player and as a person in the last two years and for that I am grateful to everyone at the club for their help and support.
"I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support.
"I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs.
"I'm still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club."
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford in December, Lindelof has established himself as a first-choice centre-back and now starts alongside record-signing Harry Maguire.
Solskjaer added: "Victor has established himself here and has become a very important part of our team. He brings calmness on the pitch and I can see that he is determined to help this club and to be successful here.
"I'm extremely happy that he has committed his future to Manchester United. We're all looking forward to working together to deliver the success and get United back to where we know the club belongs."
