Manchester United could be about to complete one of the biggest deals of the summer transfer window – and it hasn’t even officially opened yet. The journalist who broke the Anthony Martial and Angel di Maria to Manchester United stories has just confirmed United are making a huge move.
Mohamed Bouhafsi, who writes for RMC amongst others, has tweeted that Manchester United have offered Zlatan Ibrahimovic a one-year deal, with an option for a further year.

Ibrahimovic, now 34, is out of contract this summer and will leave Paris Saint-Germain. As you’d imagine, many clubs could be sniffing around for his signature, but it looks like United have already won the race.
No details of his wages or contract have been leaked yet, but you’d imagine United will have to pay him a massive amount of money to secure his services.
It could also mean curtains for Louis van Gaal, too, as Ibrahimovic and Van Gaal don’t get on whatsoever.
