Personal terms on a one-year contract were agreed prior to Euro 2016 after negotiations between Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola and Man United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward had taken place.
Talks took longer than expected and a move was not possible before he jetted off with Sweden in France, but he has now retired from international football following Sweden’s group stage exit from the European Championship.
He has won domestic titles with Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG, and was always keen for a reunion with Jose Mourinho after their time together at Inter.
Ibrahimovic hasn’t shown any deterioration as he enters the latter stages of his career and while most players would start to think about retirement, he went onto score a record-best 50 goals in 51 games for French champions Paris Saint-Germain last season.
There’s no doubting his ability on the ball, he’s still one of the best strikers in the world and will drastically improve our attacking threat at Old Trafford.
Mourinho has been shaping his squad ahead of his first season with United and he’s already completed the signing of Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly with deals for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic set to be complete in the coming week.
