Zlatan Ibrahimovic ready to seal Man United transfer – report

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly told his agent to secure him a transfer to Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is keen to join Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s first signing, according to reports.

The Sweden striker’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months after he confirmed his exit from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

United are believed to be keen on luring the 34-year-old forward to Old Trafford as they look to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season.

Now, The Sun is reporting that Ibrahimovic has instructed his agent to push through a deal for him to join Mourinho at Old Trafford before the start of this summer’s European championships in France on 10 June.

United are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of ending up in fifth place in the Premier League table this season.
