Zlatan Ibrahimovic tells Man United to sign Italy star – report

Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants Manchester United to sign Marco Verratti this summer, according to reports

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Manchester United to make a transfer bid to sign Marco Verratti this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new players as Jose Mourinho prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

United have already moved quickly to bring Eric Bailly to Old Trafford as Mourinho’s first summer signing last week.

Ibrahimovic is thought to have all but agreed a deal to move to United this summer after his Paris Saint-Germain contract expired at the end of the season.

Now, the Daily Express is reporting that Ibrahimovic is keen for United to make a move to bring his former PSG team-mate Verratti to the club.
