Reports on Saturday suggested that Zlatan has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and the movie is due to be complete before the Euros.
The 34 year old Swede striker is available on a free transfer after deciding not to renew his contract with Paris Saint Germain. The media has linked him with a host of clubs besides United – Tottenham, Malmo, Celtic and so on.
But it is believed that the Swede still wants to play an important role in a big club’s first team before considering a move to a smaller club or contemplating retirement.
However, a deal also depends on Zlatan’s agent Mino Raiola acquiring a good fee for bringing him to the 2012-13 Premier League winners. Raiola is in France this weekend so it is safe to say that no deal will happen until early next week at the earliest.
Sweden boss Erik Hamren has indicated that he would let Ibrahimovic complete a move on one of his days off from training. ‘We have days off. We plan our activities and the players can act based on that,’ Hamren said. ‘I’m not going to speculate about such things.’
Ibrahimovic is currently with the Sweden squad preparing for their opening game of Euro 2016 against Republic of Ireland on 13 June.
