Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to undergo a medical at Manchester United imminently ahead of a move to Old Trafford this summer. The Swedish international has retired from international football and will be out of contract with Paris Saint-Germain when his deal expires on 30 June.
Sky Sports reports that he will sign a one-year contract with the Red Devils and reunite with Jose Mourinho for the second time in his career, having previously worked with him at Inter Milan. The 34-year-old has won league titles in three different countries, namely Italy, Spain and France and will be a valuable addition to Mourinho's squad as they look to bring United back to its glory days.
Personal terms between the two parties were agreed before the Euros, but other details took some more time to resolve, which meant that the move could not be completed until Sweden completed their participation in the Euros. Ibrahimovic's capture will be Mourinho's second of the summer following the arrival of Eric Bailly from Villarreal. They are also close to completing a deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and reports suggest that they have agreed a deal worth £26.3m ($35m) with the midfielder said to have agreed personal terms following discussions between the club and his representatives.
Both players are managed by agent Mino Raiola and Mourinho wants a third player in Paul Pogba to make his way to Manchester. The Sun report claims that United are willing to break the world record transfer fee Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale to land the French midfielder. The mercurial midfielder is currently with France in the Euros and will make a decision over his future when the tournament ends.
The Red Devils are not in the Champions League next season, having finished the recently concluded one in fifth spot, behind the likes of Leicester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City. They begin their Premier League campaign against AFC Bournemouth on 13 August, dates of which are subject to change with the introduction of the TV schedule.
