Zlatan Ibrahimovic has announced on social media that he is signing for Manchester United with it widely being expected that he will put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal at Old Trafford imminently. 

The enigmatic 34-year-old may well be approaching the latter stages of his career, but he's still widely recognised as one of the leading strikers in world football. 

And at Manchester United, he will once again be reunited with Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho.

Indeed, the duo enjoyed a prominent period together during the 2008/09 season, where Ibrahimovic netted 25 Serie A goals to help Inter secure title success. 

They were quite the combination and now there's every chance that they could bring the glory days back to Manchester.

The best comments 

Well, you may well also be interested in some of the best comments from both Mourinho and Ibrahimovic on each other. 

Sky Sports have relayed a number of the best quotes and here are two of our favourites.


Back in 2014, Mourinho revealed what happened when Ibrahimovic asked him to be substituted.

Jose stated: "He was very angry and upset as he came at me. He was shouting, 'We are champions, I helped a lot to make you champions, now nobody's helping me. I want to [come off] now'.

"But I pretended not to understand him. I said, 'What? What? Do you want a drink, do you want some water?' and I threw him a bottle. I told him, 'Here, take a drink and go'. A few minutes later he scored a beautiful goal."

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, previously stated that he was 'willing to die for' Mourinho.

He stated: "That guy says whatever he wants. I like him. He's the leader of his army. But he cares, too. He would text me all the time at Inter, wondering how I was doing.

"He's the exact opposite of Pep Guardiola. If Mourinho lights up a room, Guardiola draws the curtains. Mourinho would become a guy I was basically willing to die for."
