OLD TRAFFORD, Sporting Alert – Zlatan Ibrahimovic will have a medical in Manchester after Euro 2016 ahead of a potential transfer move to Manchester United this summer, Sky Sports News HQ is reporting on Tuesday.
DEAL AGREED, READY TO SIGN
The British sports channel reported that all personal terms between the English Premier League club and the striker have already been agreed, and the final thing to do now is to complete his medical.
Ibrahimovic, who plays under current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho during their time at Inter Milan and the pair will link up again, as the Sweden forward will sign a one-year contract to move to Old Trafford, according to Sky sources.
Both parties were hoping to have an agreement completed before the start of the Euro 2016 tournament, but negotiations between the player’s representative, Mino Raiola and Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, which took place in recent weeks, went longer than anticipated, which led to the talisman leaving for the national team.
NO INTERFERENCE AT EURO 2016
Sweden head coach Erik Hamrén ruled out any activities between Ibrahimovic and Manchester United outside of France, strongly stating that his captain and leading striker would not be permitted to leave camp to fly to Manchester during the Euro 2016 championship.
Sky Sports is reporting on Tuesday, however, that both parties are well relaxed about the circumstance and are confident that a deal will be finalised in due time.
There were reports bouncing around the media suggesting that Ibrahimovic and PSG were working on a deal to keep the goalscoring forward in France.
There were also other reports claiming that the Sweden international has a clause in his expiring contract, which blocks him from making any announcements about where he will play next season until after June 30.
Despite all the circulating rumours, Manchester United are confident that a deal, indeed, is in place and will be signed by Ibrahimovic later this summer, following his medical.
