Zlatan Ibrahimovic to join Man United under Jose Mourinho’s coaching
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed to join Manchester United and plans are in place for him to take up a coaching role with the club, according to a report on Monday.
Ibrahimovic, who has left Paris Saint-Germain following the expiration of his contract, has turned down an annual salary of £39m on offer in China to move to Old Trafford.
The paper says plans are in place for Ibrahimovic, 34, to become an assistant manager at Old Trafford when he does decide to end his playing days.
That will likely be under Jose Mourinho, who is poised to be named United’s new manager after the club sacked Louis van Gaal – although official confirmation is still awaited.
