United could swoop for Zlatan.

Manchester United should complete Zlatan Ibrahimovic signing claims Roy Keane

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has backed Jose Mourinho to bring Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Old Trafford this summer. 

Keane claims that the 34-year-old striker is the type of character the club need, claiming that he would be a good fit.

Ibrahimovic may well be approaching the latter stages of his career, but he's showing no signs of slowing down.

Indeed, the enigmatic forward struck a remarkable 38 goals in Ligue 1 last season - 17 more than any other player. 

It's safe to say, then, that he would improve the United front line, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club complete the free transfer over the coming weeks and months. Keane is most definitely an advocate of the potential deal.

Keane wants Zlatan 

“I think he would be a good signing on a one-year deal,” Keane said on ITV, as per the Manchester Evening News.


“He is a big player, a big character.

"I have said that United have been lacking a few characters and he would be a good fit there.”

Rashford deal

Ibrahimovic would represent a fine short-term solution for the Red Devils, but fans will also be pleased by the news that teenager Marcus Rashford has signed a new long-term deal with the club. 


Rashford has put pen to paper on a deal which could see him stay at the club until the summer of 2020. 

The 18-year-old only made his debut for the Red Devils back in February but quickly established himself as a leading player and could now play a role for England at Euro 2016.
