Zlatan Ibrahimovic's reported move to Manchester United has been delayed over the extra bonus payment the striker will receive from Paris Saint-Germain. His contract with the Ligue 1 outfit will expire on 30 June and is a free agent in the summer.
According to The Daily Mail, the 34-year-old will trigger a clause in his contract at PSG, where he will receive a loyalty bonus. As per the clause, the former Barcelona and Juventus man will be eligible for extra payment if he decides against signing for a club when he is still contracted to the French champions.
Ibrahimovic will sign a one-year deal on 1 July, a day after his contract with PSG expires and is set to be Jose Mourinho's second signing at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician replaced Louis van Gaal as United manager in May after the Red Devils showed the exit door to their former manager, just days after he guided them to FA Cup success.
Mourinho has already helped United sign Eric Bailly from Villarreal as the Ivory Coast defender became the ex-Chelsea manager's first signing at his new club. Ibrahimovic is set to become his second signing and this will see the striker reunite with his former manager, having previously worked together at Inter Milan.
He was initially selected for the Rio Olympics, which had raised concerns over his Old Trafford switch. However, Ibrahimovic announced his retirement from international football after Sweden's disappointing display in the European championship and that gave a fresh hope to the Red Devils.
United will unveil their new manager to the media on Tuesday, 5 July. The report claims that though Ibrahimovic will sign for the Premier League giants on Friday, the English outfit could delay his announcement until next week.
