Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic is willing to make a switch to Manchester United in the summer if the Red Devils current manager Louis van Gaal leaves Old Trafford after the end of the 2015/16 season. The striker's contract at Parc des Princes expires in June and he has already expressed his desire to leave the Ligue 1 winners after this campaign.
The 34-year-old has so far scored 30 goals and registered 11 assists in 26 league games for the French champions this term. He has been instrumental in PSG's success in the last few seasons and the frontman is now looking for a new challenge.
Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola earlier revealed the Premier League big guns are chasing for his client's signature. According to Sky Sports, he is open to the idea of making a switch to Old Trafford but only if the Dutchman is shown the exit door.
The Swedish international has already stressed about his strained relationship with Van Gaal when the latter was the technical director and Ronald Koeman was the manager at Ajax. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach has one year left on his United's contract.
However, Van Gaal's future at the club remains uncertain as the 20-time English champions could miss out on next season's Champions League. After their 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, the Red Devils are fifth in the league table with 53 points after 32 matches, four points behind fourth placed Manchester City.
Jose Mourinho remains confident of replacing the ex-Netherlands boss at Old Trafford in the summer, according to ESPN. Should the Portuguese tactician take Van Gaal's position, Ibrahimovic would then be looking to join United as the duo have worked at Inter Milan in the past.
The PSG attacker already has an offer from the far east, as an unnamed Chinese club have made a £56m ($79.7m) offer to sign him. Should LVG leave United, the Swede will be ready to sign for the Premier League giants.
Ibrahimovic will be in Manchester on 12 April as PSG take on City in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final clash. He will be hoping to help his side seal a victory after the first leg in Paris ended in a 2-2 draw.
