Manchester United are in talks over a £600,000-a-week deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Ibrahimovic’s contract with the Ligue 1 side expires at the end of the season and Man United are believed to be the favourites to secure the Swede’s services.

Ibrahimovic has enjoyed a spectacular season with Laurent Blanc’s side having registered 32 goals and 13 assists across all competitions.

A move could depend on whether Louis van Gaal keeps his job at Old Trafford next campaign as Sky Sports recently reported that he would only consider a move if the Dutchman leaves.

Marcus Rashford has impressed up top for United this season but it is clear that the side is missing an arrogant presence in attack.

Ibrahimovic would certainly provide that and a combination of him and Jose Mourinho, who is widely considered to be the front-runner to replace van Gaal at Old Trafford, would give United a solid platform on which to build.
