Photo: Zlatan Ibrahimovic poses with super agent amid Man United speculation

The veteran striker poses for a controversial photo with his agent Mino Raiola amid talk of a new Manchester United deal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his super agent Mino Raiola are in no mood to mess around.

The former Sweden international is a free agent after Manchester United released the 35-year-old striker at the end of his one-year contract.

Ibrahimovic is still training at the Europa League winners as the veteran striker continues his rehabilitation from a serious knee problem.

Speculation over the past week has suggested that Manchester United could still offer the towering striker a new deal despite letting him go last month.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in all competitions during his first season at Old Trafford to help Manchester United win the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

His agent Raiola has already been involved in one transfer deal with Manchester United this summer after his client Romelu Lukaku opted to move to the Red Devils ahead of champions Chelsea.

And Ibrahimovic has certainly got a lot of respect for the outspoken agent after he posted the above photo with Raiolo and wrote the following caption:

“The One and Only #minoraiola”

Manchester United signed Lukaku and Benfica defender Victor Lindelof in deals totalling £105m in the summer transfer window so far.
