Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has announced that he is joining Manchester United, ending intense speculation about where the 34-year-old Swedish superstar forward will be playing next season.
“Time to let the world know. My next destination is Manchester United,” he wrote on social media, complete with a picture of the United badge.
Ibrahimovic, who was a free agent after ending a hugely successful stay at Paris Saint-Germain, becomes the second signing of new United boss Jose Mourinho after that of highly rated Ivory Coast centre-back Eric Bailly from the Spanish outfit Villarreal.
Ibrahimovic reunites with Mourinho after they enjoyed a good relationship while together at Italian club Inter Milan, in what is likely to be the last major move in a career spanning five countries and reaping 11 league titles.
He is set to sign a one-year deal on Friday that will see him earn about £220,000 a week ($393,000), British media said.
