Manchester United’s interest in influential striker all-but confirmed by agent

One of the biggest free agent transfers in the history of football could happen this summer, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out-of-contract, and plenty of clubs will be chasing his signature. His agent, Mino Raiola, claims that all the big clubs in England have been chasing his client.

“Outside of MCFC who will be managed by Guardiola, all the big (English) clubs have knocked on the door.” Mino Raiola said.

At the end of the day, Manchester United have been lacking any real on-field leaders for quite some time, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic would certainly have somewhat of a similar effect to that of Eric Cantona.

The 34-year old still has plenty of ability, but signing him would be a massive gamble due to his age. If he picks up one major injury then thats curtains on his career, and Manchester United will be left paying his hefty wages for the remainder of his contract.
