Manchester United could be given a golden opportunity to increase their attacking power following reports, as per the Daily Mail, revealed that PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been told that he is free to leave the club.

United have lacked a strong, central attacking striker for over two seasons now, and with new signing Memphis Depay struggling to find his feet in the Premier League and Wayne Rooney yet to find form in his preferred lone-striker role, a move for the Swede could be ideal for manager Louis van Gaal.

With a chance to solve the Red Devils attacking problems in one swoop, and the Parisians demanding a cut-price fee for someone still regarded as one of the world's finest, Van Gaal might be very keen to make one last summer signing for the new season to come.

After a number of impressing performances at the 2012 World Cup for Sweden, Ibrahimovic made a €20 million transfer to PSG where he became an instant success, scoring 75 league goals in 92 league appearances and helping his club to win three straight titles.

And whilst the striker's fiery personality has caused him to receive over 100 yellow cards and 11 red cards during his career, his strength, aerial ability and clinical finishing would be welcome additions to a United side struggling in front of goal, though they could face competition for the 33-year-old's signature.

However, whilst the cut-price fee will sound appealing to his many suitors, Ibrahimovic's wage demands are likely to pose as an issue even for the Red Devils who, let's not forget, shelled out in excess of £300,000-per-week on renowned flop Radamel Falcao last season.

Whether or not Manchester United or Arsenal will have time to make a transfer for the PSG striker before the end of the transfer window is yet to be seen, but you can be rest assured that this international superstar would prove a worthy addition to any of Europe's elite.
