Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed on Instagram and Twitter that he will be joining Manchester United.
“Time to let the world know,” he posted, along with the club Red Devils’ club crest.
“My next destination is Manchester United.”
The 34-year-old former Sweden skipper will become new United boss Jose Mourinho’s second signing and will pen a one-year deal, with the option for a further 12 months.
United insist no deal has yet been signed with Ibrahimovic, who has yet to undergo a medical with them.
But a verbal agreement has been reached between both parties, with no other clubs involved, and the deal is expected to be signed this weekend.
Ibrahimovic will become a free agent on Friday, when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires and he will receive a loyalty bonus of around £1million.
He yesterday served notice of his impending move on his Instagram account, posting: “For me it is all about looking forward, not back. A new journey is starting.”
