In-demand Ibrahimovic teases ‘big announcement’ on future
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has got tongues wagging after revealing he will make a "big announcement" on Tuesday afternoon.
Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Sweden international and the striker announced he will soon unveil his destiny having spent the last few weeks playing cat-and-mouse with the world’s media.
He continued to keep football fans guessing by speaking on Swedish TV about his plans this week as his team prepare for their Euro 2016 Group E opener against the Republic of Ireland on June 13.
"There will be a big announcement on June 7. It will be this summer’s big bomb," Ibrahimovic said. "It feels good, feels better than good. A lot will happen with this news, so hopefully you’ll all enjoy."
When pushed on his destination following his exit from PSG, he added: "Come and see on the 7th."
While it is expected the former Milan and Barcelona forward will unveil a new clothing line at 5pm on Tuesday, he may use the platform to maximize exposure and reveal his anticipated switch to United.
Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Ibrahimovic’s representatives are reported to have been finalizing terms on a one-year deal, with Mourinho determined to make the Swede his first marquee signing.
It is also understood that Ibrahimovic is the only striker Mourinho wants to acquire this summer, with the Portuguese convinced Marcus Rashford can make a significant impact at Old Trafford next season.
