Manchester United is about to get very interesting, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his way to Old Trafford next season.

The move has not yet been confirmed by the club but the player himself has confirmed the move on his Instagram account with this post.

The mercurial Swede has been one of the world’s leading superstars for the past decade during impressive stints at the likes of Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and most recently Paris Saint-Germain.

This deal has been mooted for some time. It had become apparent that Zlatan would not be signing a new deal at PSG this summer and with new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho a big fan of the ultra-confident frontman it always seemed this was his likely next step.

Zlatan, who struggled recently at the European Championships for Sweden, has continued to thrive in the Champions League and in French football at PSG and Manchester United fans will no doubt be hoping that he can have a similar impact at Old Trafford as he has at many of his former teams.

One thing for sure, the Premier League just got itself a superstar again.
