Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been increasingly linked with Manchester United in recent weeks.
The 34-year-old is out of contract with PSG at the end of the season. He refused to confirm that he will sign an extension with the French club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a major reason in making PSG as one of the global powers. However, he appears to be in search of a new challenge and this may come in the form of a move to United. The club are in desperate need of some quality forwards. Since Ibrahimovic will not cost anything in wages, it will be seen as a favourable deal.
Midfielder Juan Mata has given the first indication that Ibrahimovic’s next destination maybe Old Trafford. He has welcomed the Swedish striker by saying that his qualities will enhance United’s strength. Ibrahimovic is a household name in Netherlands, Italy, and France. He has also won league titles in Spain apart from these countries. The only major league he has not played is the English Premier League. The chance to test in such a competitive league will be hard to turn down. Mata will enjoy playing with every match given that the striker enjoys being on the end of a great ball. The Spaniard recently set up Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game against Manchester City.
“I don’t know what he is going to do, whether he is going to stay there or not.Maybe he will try a new chapter in his long career.He is probably the best in Sweden’s history for what he represents. He has played in so many countries and leagues and won trophies everywhere. That speaks about his quality as a player and his importance for PSG and in the national team where he is a captain,” said Mata.
