• The record-breaking Swede enjoyed a stellar campaign with Paris Saint-Germain last season.
  • The striker will become the second signing of the Jose Mourinho era at Old Trafford.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reportedly undergoing his medical at Manchester United ahead of his long-awaited move to Old Trafford. The 34-year-old striker announced yesterday (30 June) that he is to join the Red Devils this summer and Ibrahimovic is currently putting the finishing touches to his transfer.

Ibrahimovic, whose contract with former club Paris Saint-Germain has now officially expired, is set to sign a lucrative deal at United once his medical is complete, according to Sky Sports. The Swede announced his widely-anticipated move via Instagram, posting an image of the club's crest and captioning it: "Time to let the world know. My next destination is Manchester United."

Assuming Ibrahimovic successfully completes his medical at United, the Swede will become the second signing under new boss Jose Mourinho, who worked with the striker at Inter Milan. Ibrahimovic has spoken in glowing terms about Mourinho in the past, while United's manager has also been hugely complimentary about the former Barcelona and AC Milan star.

"A player who gave me as much as Ibra will always be in my heart. He did a lot for Inter and Inter did a lot for him. I like seeing Ibra," Mourinho previously said, according to the Daily Mail, ahead of Ibrahimovic's move to United.

"I greet him whenever I get the chance to and I wish him all the best – except when he plays against me. He is very special, he is one of the best strikers in the world."

United sealed the £30m ($39.9m) transfer of Eric Bailly from Villarreal last month and are reportedly close to signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund, too. The Old Trafford club have also been strongly linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
