Mino Raiola has dropped a new hint over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's long-rumoured move to Manchester United, saying that it's destiny for his client to face Pep Guardiola next season. However, the super-agent has reiterated that no decision will be made until Sweden are officially eliminated from the European Championship.
The 34-year-old striker is widely expected to move to Old Trafford ahead of next season, after deciding against renewing his contract at Paris Saint-Germain. New Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on reuniting with the player, who he once managed at Inter Milan. The Swede enjoyed his most productive campaign to date last season, netting 50 goals in 51 appearances for the Ligue 1 billionaires.
Sky Sports reported last week that Ibrahimovic will undergo a medical after Euro 2016, having already agreed terms to move to Manchester.
Raiola, however, denied that and said his charge is yet to make a decision on his future.
"Manchester United are a great team with a great coach. It's fascinating. I've made my decision, but he hasn't made his. He's really busy with the Euros," Raiola told Telefoot.
The outspoken agent has now admitted that a move is likely, as Ibrahimovic wants revenge against new Manchester City manager Guardiola after the pair fell out during their time together at Barcelona.
"I think [Ibrahimovic] wants revenge on Guardiola, although he does not live for it because you shouldn't have two graves – one for him and one for the enemy. Destiny wants that meeting to take place," Raiola said to Marca. "You learn more from defeats than you do from victories, and Zlatan learned a lot from what happened with Guardiola."
"Zlatan is a very balanced guy, although people may think otherwise. As people they [Guardiola and Ibrahimovic] do not like each other. I don't like him [Guardiola]. Zlatan, however, admits Pep is a great coach. One of the options is going to the Premier League, but until Sweden are eliminated in the Euros there will not be a solution."
