Manchester United summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be set to miss his teams two-game pre-season trip to China on Tuesday according to the BBC.
United will play Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai on 22 July and cross-city rivals Manchester City in Beijing on 25 July.
The report does not actually explain why Ibrahimovic could end up missing the tour but if he does it is unknown when he will make his first appearance for United.
The Red Devils will play Salford City at Moor Lane on 26 July and then take on Turkish giants Galatasaray in Gothenburg on 30 July.
Perhaps Ibrahimovic will be waiting for the Galatasaray game as it will be played in his home country of Sweden but currently it all remains a mystery.
United will then play Wayne Rooney’s testimonial at Old Trafford on 3 August and then face Leicester City in the Community Shield the following week on 7 August.
