Football’s mega superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed his exit from Manchester United with a post on social media.
The Swedish legend shared a post on Instagram, wherein he stated that he came to England, and successfully conquered the English football. Zlatan posted a picture of himself celebrating a goal for Manchester United, and the caption read: “I came. I said. I conquered.”
Zlatan won 3 trophies under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, that included the Community Shield, the EFL Cup, and the UEFA Europa League, to mark a successful association with the Old Trafford club. The former PSG, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter, Juventus and Ajax player scored 28 goals in 46 games for United, after arriving at United on a free transfer.
Despite questions being asked on his age and the demands of the Premier League, Zlatan delivered in style to waive off his critics. He certainly did wonders at United, and his latest tweet once again gave another glimpse of the warrior he is on and off the field.
The star striker suffered a terrible knee injury while playing in the Europa League last season, which will keep him out until the end of the year. This injury also led the club to deciding against renewing his contract.
Reports now claim that several top European clubs are interested in the 36-year-old forward, and there is interest from America too. The future of Zlatan is unclear, but his intentions to continue playing are a boost for his fans around the world.
For now, though, Ibra will continue his rehabilitation at Carrington in Manchester, whilst the Old Trafford club searches for a striker to replace Zlatan in the market. In fact, reports claim that they have agreed on a deal with Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata already.
