Transfer news: Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to sign one-year deal at Old Trafford


ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC is set to join Manchester United on a one-year deal before the start of Euro 2016.

The Swede superstar, 34, will link up with Jose Mourinho once again after the pair worked together at Inter Milan in 2008.

According to Sky, Ed Woodward and Zlatan’s representatives are finalising terms on a year long contract.

With the emergence of teenage sensation Marcus Rashford, Mourinho is content to stick with youth and believes Ibrahimovic is the only striker he’ll need this summer.

Ibrahimovic revealed last week that he knew the identity of his next club but refused to outright name United — but added he had a ‘concrete offer from England’.

The Swede had a superb season for Paris Saint-Germain as they won a fourth straight Ligue 1 title, netting 50 goals in just 52 games.

And he spoke of his admiration of Mourinho, who he was ‘willing to kill for’, after the Special One was appointed at Old Trafford.

The Swede already has La Liga, Italian Serie A, French Ligue 1 and the Dutch Eredivisie to his name — and wants the Premier League.

In his last ten season’s in club football, Ibrahimovic has won nine league titles and wants to team up with Mourinho for another.
