Reports say Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and is set to hold talks with Jose Mourinho, the club’s new manager.
The Sweden international, who will captain his country at this summer’s European Championships in France, played his last game for Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season ahead of the expiration of his current contract later this month.
Ibrahimovic enjoys a friendly relationship with Mourinho and, according to reports, his agent, Mino Raiola, has agreed on prospective salary for his client with Old Trafford officials.
The deal now reportedly rests on Ibrahimovic receiving assurances from Mourinho that he will be central to his plans next season. At 34-years-old, the striker does not wish to spend the last few years of his career as a backup player.
Raiola’s potential fee for completing the deal must also be negotiated and, according to The Guardian’s report, talks on that matter will not commence until at least next week.
Ibrahimovic has been relatively open about his future in recent weeks, admitting that he had decided which club he would like to join on several occasions.
