Striker guaranteed to be Jose Mourinho’s first Man United signing – report

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to become Jose Mourinho's first signing at Manchester United, say reports

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to become Jose Mourinho’s first signing at Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to bring the veteran Sweden international to Old Trafford as Mourinho prepares for his first full season at the club.

Ibrahimovic is a free agent since his release by Paris Saint-Germain this summer and has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

The 34-year-old striker is a big fan of Mourinho, having played under the Portuguese coach during the pair’s spell at Inter Milan.

Now, Metro is reporting that Ibrahimovic is set to become Mourinho’s first summer signing since his arrival at Manchester United last week.

Mourinho has been tasked with restoring United to the top of English football after their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last season led to Louis van Gaal’s sacking.
