Manchester United have been handed a massive boost in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as Sweden have allowed the striker to leave the national training camp to help him complete his switch to Old Trafford. The 34-year-old is a free agent and has already expressed his desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain in search of a new challenge.
Earlier reports suggested that the Swedish international has completed a move to Old Trafford, only for it be confirmed officially. However, according to the Daily Mail, the deal is not yet complete as his agent Mino Raiola is in Monte Carlo on business.
The Red Devils new manager Jose Mourinho is an admirer of the free-scoring striker, having worked together at Inter Milan. The player has also praised the Portuguese tactician after confirming interest from the Premier League in May.
Sweden will play their final warm-up match against Wales in Stockholm on 5 June. The former Barcelona and Juventus frontman sat out of the side's goalless draw against Slovenia and is expected to face Wales on Sunday.
Ibrahimovic's move to United will go through and he has been given a green light by Sweden coach Erik Hamren to seal the move. He admitted that players would be given days off and that is when Ibrahimovic could complete his switch to England.
"We have days off. We plan our activities and the players can act based on that. I'm not going to speculate about such things," the Daily Mail quoted Harmen as saying.
On the Wales clash, the Sweden coach said, "My idea is that as many as possible would get game time. That won't be the case for the goalkeepers, but otherwise it is my hope that everyone will have some minutes in their legs before we go to France."
Ibrahimovic had earlier admitted that he wanted his future sorted before the start of Euro 2016, which begins on 10 June. With the striker edging closer to completing a switch to Old Trafford, he will be Mourinho's first signing at United.
