It's official. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is finally leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, leaving some of the biggest clubs across the globe to fight it out for his coveted signature.

Despite being 34 years of age, Ibrahimovic has rocketed in an astonishing total of 36 goals in Ligue 1 this season. To put that figure into context, United's league topscorer this season is Anthony Martial, with 11 goals to his name.

United fans have longed for exciting attacking football the entire season and Ibrahimovic could well be the man to deliver just that.

At 34, Ibrahimovic is not a young kid by any means, but he has proven his worth in scoring at least 30 goals in each of his last four seasons. 

Manchester United are in a transition period with a number of young players coming through the ranks. Having a player like Ibrahimovic in the dressing room would immediately galvanise the side and give the youngsters a chance to learn from the very best.

United have lacked a mercurial world class player ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club in 2009. The signing of the Swedish striker would prove to be a real sign of intent to the rest of the world that United mean business.

As for Ibrahimovic, a move to United would give him the opportunity to play in the famous Premier League, something he hasn't done before. It would be the perfect platform for him to prove any doubters wrong whether he could still cut it in an extremely competitive league.

One thing is certain, there will be no shortage of suitors for the mercurial striker and United must move quickly if they are to get their man.
