Is Zlatan Ibrahimovic the secret Manchester United target?

Louis van Gaal has left all of us wondering just who is the surprise striker he is trying to get at Old Trafford? Is it Muller? Cavani? Benzema? I could go on forever really.

However an interesting revelation is that coincidentally odds have now been slashed on a certain Swedish striker moving to Manchester - no it is not John Guidetti making a triumphant return to the blue half of Manchester sadly.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the man who could be making the move to United in what would surely be one of the biggest and most surprising transfers in recent history.

After all Zlatan is without question one of the biggest names in football and probably one of the most talented in the world - it seems a shame that he has been plying his trade in Ligue 1 for this long.

However this is a man who has achieved domestic success all across Europe, a man who once scored an overhead kick from the half way line and has provided some of the finest quotes in the history of the game - not to mention having a famous fall out with Pep Guardiola.

While he is yet to achieve European glory he has more than enough trophies to his name to further enhance his impressive reputation and now the Premier League could be yet another stomping ground for which Zlatan looks to conquer.


From Manchester United's point of view the signing of Zlatan would be yet another statement of their immense financial muscle while acquiring a player who is capable of winning games on his own and is feared by defenders all over Europe.

I think the departures of Van Persie and Falcao would be forgotten almost immediately if this transfer were to be pulled off and I can safely say that opposition fans will be looking on with a degree of concern, well at least they should be.
