Manchester United are finally about to seal a deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after almost a month of talks and gossip. Now, according to the Daily Mail as well as others, a deal is set to go through this Friday.
That means that Manchester United fans have less than 48 hours to wait before their second signing of the summer is complete.
Ibrahimovic’s PSG contract runs out tomorrow, meaning he is due for a loyalty bonus from the French side – but after that, he is free to sign for whoever he chooses.
It looks for all the world that Manchester United have won his signature, and what a real statement of intent that would be by Jose Mourinho.
The influential forward will sign a one-year contract at Old Trafford, and you understand exactly why the club aren’t offering him any longer – purely due to his age.
Let’s not forget that Manchester United are acquiring a player who found the back of the net fifty times last season, and that added goal input will have a really positive effect on the rest of the squad.
