Zlatan Ibrahimovic has arrived at Manchester United’s training ground Carrington to undergo his medical ahead of completing his move.
The 34-year-old took part in Euro 2016 with Sweden this summer so there are not expected to be any issues and pending a successful medical an official announcement would be made to unveil him as Jose Mourinho‘s second signing after Villareal defender Eric Bailly.

Ibrahimovic himself has already confirmed he’ll be joining Man United, even before the club did, so excitement is already palpable to hear the official announcement from United.
Seeing Zlatan holding up his United shirt alongside a smiling Jose Mourinho is going to be the best possible way to kick start the official opening of the summer transfer window on July 1, and more moves are expected.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to arrive in Manchester on Friday afternoon by private jet to push through his deal while another one or two signings are also likely to happen, both in central midfielder and at centre-back.
But as far as big name signings go, Ibrahimovic is likely to be the most blockbuster player to join the Premier League this summer.
