Ibrahimovic to Manchester United: PSG striker won’t rule out summer transfer

Iconic striker provides teasing update on his future.

Louis van Gaal’s chances of bringing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United may have just received a slight boost after the player himself failed to rule out a move, according to Sky Sports.

The Swedish international is one of the game’s most renowned centre-forwards after a superb career at the top level of European football, and his move to the Premier League would be one met with great excitement by fans of the Red Devils and neutrals alike.

In recent days, talkSPORT have claimed that Ibrahimovic could be one of United’s top targets up front this summer, with the club in need of a top class replacement for the departing Robin van Persie, who recently left for Fenerbahce, joining loan flop Radamel Falcao out of the exit door to leave Wayne Rooney as the Reds’ only recognised striker.

“Should I stay in Paris? My future is in the hands of (agent) Mino Raiola,” he said when asked about a possible move this summer.

At the age of 33, Ibrahimovic may be heading towards the end of his career, but he still managed a hugely impressive tally of 30 goals last season, following on from 41 the season before, showing that he still looks like performing at the peak of his powers.
