Manager comments on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s proposed transfer to Man United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be allowed to fly to England to sign for Manchester United during Euro 2016

Sweden head coach Erik Hamren has told Zlatan Ibrahimovic that it “would not be OK” for the striker to fly to Manchester during Euro 2016 to finalise his transfer to United.

The Sweden international has been heavily linked with a move to link up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.

The latest media reports have suggested that the striker will wait until the end of June to make his move because he is due a loyalty payment from PSG for seeing out his contract.

However, it appears that Hamren has no intention of letting the striker leave Sweden’s training camp to complete a deal to move to United any time soon.

Speaking at a news conference, Hamren said: “Players have their leisure time on the schedule, what they do then there’s nothing I can do to control. But it would not be OK for Zlatan to fly to Manchester.

“I’m 100 per cent sure it [the speculation] will not affect Zlatan. He has been in the business a long time. He handles it perfectly.”
