While almost every football fan has started to assume that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be a Manchester United player next season, the player's agent has mentioned some worrying news for the Red Devils fans. "It is not true," Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola said when asked if his client was moving to Old Trafford this summer.
The PSG superstar, whose contract at the French club expires at the end of next month, will be a free agent, come July 1. On being asked if he was indeed joining the 20-time English league winners, Ibrahimovic said "Let's see what happens" and nothing further.
While the 34-year-old striker may not have given a concrete answer, Raiola might have spilled some beans on his client's next move and revealed that Manchester United may or may not be a destination.
"We have not decided anything yet," Raiola was quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News on Saturday. "I think it will be a surprise in the end.
"Everyone is harping on about only United, United, United. There are some clubs in England, a few clubs in Europe, clubs outside Europe, but everyone assumes that he must go to Manchester United, but it is not true," he added.
"The club that buys him do not have to pay a transfer fee. This means that Ibrahimovic, who just finished a record season at PSG, can get an extra high salary. He is in a good bargaining position."
Raiola, who also represents Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, had earlier revealed that Ibrahimovic has been receiving offers from "every continent" and his client will take a "special decision" where he will be joining this summer.
The football agent also admitted Ibrahimovic getting a lot of interest from Chelsea, Arsenal, Inter Milan, Napoli and AC Milan, besides Manchester United.
