Paris Saint-Germain have now officially confirmed Ibrahimovic will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season after terms on an extension could not be agreed.
The Telegraph’s Jason Burt says the Swedish striker asked for £300,000-a-week after tax for his services but PSG weren’t willing to match that, paving the way for his exit.
As far as Man United are concerned, Louis van Gaal and Ibrahimovic will not work together due to their sour relationship at Ajax but the 34-year-old enjoyed his time under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan when they won the title in 2008/09. Maybe they will be re-united as the Portuguese boss is widely expected to replace the Dutchman at the end of the season.
United have heavily relied on youngsters up front this season as Wayne Rooney has dropped deeper into a midfield role. Although the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have performed well, the club is in need of a sprinkling of experience among all of our youth.
As Zlatan ends the latter stages of his career, he hasn’t shown any signs of deterioration. He’s been one of the most prolific strikers in European football, with 47 goals in 50 appearances, and his goal scoring record could boost the United attack as they’ve only found the back of the net 46 times in the Premier League this campaign.
Some reports suggest he could be moving to the MLS to join LA Galaxy in order to win more title but he has previously hinted he’d be open for a move into the Premier League so he could test himself in England.
Having already won titles in Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, a move to England could well be on the cards.
