Former Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic is all set for Manchester United medical. The Swedish international is believed to be arriving at Carrington next week, when he will complete the rest of the formalities to sign with Manchester United.
Ibrahimovic retired from international football during Euro 2016. Sweden lost to Belgium in the last game of the group stage of Euro 2016 and Ibrahimovic was forced to retire. He had announced that he would retire after Euro 2016 but unfortunately he could not help Sweden to reach the knockout stages of the tournament.
According to a report of Sky Sports, Ibrahimovic will be signing a one-year contract with Manchester United following the completion of his medical.
Ibrahimovic had reportedly agreed to personal terms with the Red Devils prior to the start of Euro 2016 through negotiations between his agent Mino Raiola and Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
The talks between Raiola and Woodward went on for long, thus the move could not be completed ahead of Euro 2016.
The Swede has always enjoyed working with Jose Mourinho back in Inter Milan. He will be delighted to work with the newly-appointed Manchester United manager again.
Mourinho has signed Eric Bailly recently and that was his first signing for United. Chances are high that Borussia Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitariyan may also complete his move to Old Trafford next week along with Ibrahimovic.
Both clubs seemed to have agreed to a fee of £26.3 million for the midfielder.
