Zlatan Ibrahimovic has promised to reveal his plans for the future via a ‘very big announcement,’ reports The Daily Mail.
The ex-Manchester United striker was photographed leaving a restaurant in Manchester along with his infamous agent Mino Raiola, prompting reporters to quiz the Swede about his future destination.
After suffering a horrific injury during last season’s Europa League quarter-finals, the Red Devils decided against extending the Swede’s stay at the club, due to the long-term recovery period. However, United have offered a generous gesture by providing him complete access to the club’s training facilities.
Following a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, the 35-year-old impressed after arriving in Manchester, bagging 28 goals and 8 assists in the previous campaign, and helping United secure the Europa League title, where they beat Ajax 2-0 in the final and earned next season’s Champions League spot.
However, the presence of Raiola, preceding Zlatan’s promise of an announcement, seems to have quite a significance. The Italian agent is known for pulling off incredible deals and transfers for players in his service, and could be planning on something similar for the forward.
Meanwhile, the Italian and the Swede were seen sharing pictures on Ibrahimovic’s social media accounts. One such post included the agent holding up his middle-finger with the caption ‘The one and only #minoraiola’.
The pair are certainly sparking curiosity among the fans as well as the media, and we can expect a shocker of a move for the decorated striker. Though the free agent will not be fit until the start of 2018, talks are still ongoing for a possible move.
