Recent rumours strongly suggested that Man United had all but completed their move for Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, with a medical expected to be completed following Euro 2016.
But new Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti, who worked with Ibrahimovic at Paris Saint-Germain, is reportedly keen on a reunion with his former player.
Bayern have reportedly identified Ibrahimovic as a potential replacement for Robert Lewandowski should the Pole move to Real Madrid.
It would be a dramatic move if Ibrahimovic was to move to Bayern as it looked for all the world like his switch to United was done. Jose Mourinho, who worked with the forward at Inter Milan, is said to be pushing for the formalities to be completed.
But stranger things have happened in football and United would be wise to not be complacent when it comes to wrapping up the deal. Ibrahimovic would provide a big boost to the squad if he did come in and it would be a blow to miss out on the Swede.
