Manchester United are all set to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic before the Euro 2016 tournament begins, according to the trustworthy Sky Sports.
Zlatan has been linked with a move to Manchester United ever since his contract with Paris Saint Germain expired, and the speculation only intensified when Jose Mourinho was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor at the United helm, given the strong bond between the Swedish striker and the Portuguese tactician from their days together at Inter Milan.
As per the Sky sources, Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Ibrahimovic’s representatives have met and discussed the move, and the two parties have finalised the terms on a one-year contract. Ibrahimovic will now become Jose Mourinho’s first marquee signing for the Red Devils.
The transfer will take place for free, and the deal is expected to be concluded before Sweden’s first Euro 2016 match against Ireland on the 13th of June.
The report also suggests that Zlatan will be the only striker Mourinho will be bringing in this summer, as the 53-year-old completely believes in the young pair of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
The 34-year-old forward, who has won league titles in Holland, Italy, Spain and France, now looks to add a Premier League trophy to his decorated trophy cabinet.
