Ibrahimovic claims he will join Manchester United

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 30 Jun 2016


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed he is set to join Manchester United, although the Premier League club are yet to officially confirm the signing. 

The Swedish striker published an Instagram post on Thursday in which he indicated he will move to Old Trafford, having left Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season and been heavily linked with United for months.

“Time to let the world know,” the post read.

“My next destination is @manchesterunited. #iamcoming.”

Should the deal be confirmed, the 34-year-old will become United’s latest signing under new manager Jose Mourinho, the pair reuniting after previously working together at Inter. 

Ibrahimovic departed PSG following the expiry of his contract at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, having won Ligue 1 in each of his four seasons in France.

Retiring from international football after Sweden’s group-stage exit at Euro 2016, the talented and outspoken centre-forward has enjoyed a glittering career, winning domestic titles at Ajax, Inter, Barcelona and AC Milan.

He also lifted the Scudetto twice at Juventus, but saw both championships revoked due to the Calciopoli scandal.

Although he is past his physical prime, Ibrahimovic has remained a potent force, scoring 38 goals in Ligue 1 last season.
