Zlatan Ibrahimovic could finally move to the Premier League and link up with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Portuguese tactician was eyeing up the Sweden international as manager of Chelsea and could now attempt to bring him to Old Trafford ahead of the 2016/17 season. 

With Louis van Gaal's long-term future in Manchester uncertain, Mourinho has been heavily linked with the top job at the Theatre of Dreams.

The forward may well be approaching the latter stages of his career, but he is still producing the goods week in, week out. 

In fact, the revered star has found the back of the net on 21 occasions in 20 Ligue 1 games so far this season while he struck the opening goal of the game during his side's important 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the Champions League Round of 16 tie on Tuesday evening. 


Premier League hint

But could the deal really happen? Well, the Mirror also report that the Swede has hinted that he could make a move to England's elite division. 

Ibrahimovic has not only admitted that 'big things will happen', he has also insisted that he is in shape to play in the Premier League.

Speaking to the Mirror, the striker stated:"I have another three months here and then what will happen? Big things will happen. Let's see what happens."

Asked whether he could move to the Premier League, the enigmatic striker responded by saying: "Let's just say I am in shape for it."

United set for change 

One thing is for sure, the presence of Mourinho and Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford really would change the dynamic of the club.

The Red Devils will be desperate to return to the summit of the Premier League in the near future and landing two of the biggest names in world football should only help them do just that. 

Ibrahimovic may well be ageing, but there's no reason why he wouldn't be able to come to prominence in Manchester. After all, he clearly still knows where the goal is.

There's still a long way to go for United in pursuit of redemption, but things could get interesting over the coming months.
