Rio Ferdinand has welcomed Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s transfer to Manchester United.

The 34-year-old centre-forward has been posting cryptic messages on his Instagram page since his final appearance for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in May.

Ibrahimovic had to experience a forgettable Euro 2016 campaign as Sweden failed to win a group-stage game and limped out of the tournament earlier this month.

Jose Mourinho’s appointment as United manager all but appeared to secure Ibrahimovic’s move to the Red Devils in order to link up with his former Inter Milan boss.

Former United defender Ferdinand welcomed Ibrahimovic’s move to Old Trafford after the Swedish forward confirmed the transfer on his Instagram page on Thursday afternoon.

Ferdinand wrote the following caption on the photo-sharing app: “#zlatan looks a little happy to be joining @manchesterunited ! Great ability, character, ego, leader, personality for the club. And a proven winner. Timing.”

Ibrahimovic scored 38 goals and made 13 assists in 31 Ligue 1 appearances for the French champions last term.
