Manchester United are set to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the striker confirming via his Instagram page that they will be his next club.

Ibrahimovic is 34, but his age has not stopped him from hitting the back of the net regularly.

Last season in France he scored a phenomenal 50 goals, on his way to helping Paris Saint-Germain win a fourth successive Ligue 1 crown.

As well as a touch of flair and leadership ability, new United boss Jose Mourinho will be hoping Zlatan's winner's mentality rubs off on his teammates.

Not everybody though is tipping him to be a success.

Shaka Hislop, former Premier League goalkeeper and international teammate of Dwight Yorke, believes he will struggle.

The ESPN pundit said on Twitter that he has struck a bet that Zlatan will score less than 15 goals.

Zlatan is likely to have his sights set on much higher numbers than these.

In the Premier League alone, he should be eyeing the figure of 25, which was enough for Tottenham's Harry Kane to win the 2015/16 Golden Boot, and trying to surpass this.
