Zlatan to join Man Utd on a one-year contract ‘a done deal’

Date published: Monday 23rd May 2016 3:12

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed to join Manchester United on a free transfer, according to a report in Holland. 

De Telegraaf claims a deal has been done to take the free agent to Old Trafford, where he is set to link up again with Jose Mourinho.

The Dutch publication has enjoyed good links with United in recent years since Louis van Gaal took over in 2014. Van Gaal has lost his job at Old Trafford, and De Telegraaf claims the possibility of a future coaching role at United is part of the reason why Ibrahimovic has snubbed multiple offers elsewhere to join the Red Devils.

Ibrahimovic, whose agent Mino Raiola was born in Holland, enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Mourinho when the pair worked together at Inter Milan. The 34-year-old left Paris Saint-German at the end of the Ligue 1 season having scored 156 goals in 180 competitive matches for the French champions. He has also won titles with Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona and AC Milan.
