Manchester United sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Manchester United have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The former Sweden international has confirmed he is heading Manchester United after leaving Paris St-Germain.

The 34-year-old, capped 116 times for his country, was out of contract after four years at the French champions.

He will link up again with his former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

“Time to let the world know. My next destination is Manchester United,” he wrote on social media.

However, Manchester United FC is yet to break the news on their official website. United, who finished fifth in the Premier League last season and failed to qualify for the Champions League have made it a mandate to return to the top of the Barclay’s Premier league log and book a champions league spot next season.

Ibrahimovic is yet to complete a medical and sign a contract with the Old Trafford club.

Ibrahimovic made his debut for hometown club Malmo in 1999 and went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan before joining PSG.

He has scored 392 goals in 677 games and last season was his most prolific, with 50 goals in 51 matches – a record for the French club. His tally of 38 league goals was also a club record.

The player – who retired from international football after Sweden’s exit from Euro 2016 earlier this month – has won a trophy every season of his career since 2001, including 13 league titles.

In his four seasons at PSG, Ibrahimovic won 12 trophies, including the domestic quadruple twice.
