Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic could become one of Jose Mourinho's first signings for Manchester United. 

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that the Red Devils are set to confirm the appointment of Mourinho in the next 72 hours. 

The self-proclaimed 'Special One' has been out of work since being axed from Chelsea back in December, but it appears that he is closing in on a return to English football.

And, according to The Telegraph, there's every chance that he will be reunited with PSG striker Ibrahimovic. 

Ibrahimovic, 34, previously starred under Mourinho during his time at Serie A outfit Inter Milan. The veteran has, of course, never played in the Premier League, but it finally appears that he's set to express himself on English soil. 

Ibrahimovic details 

After a remarkable campaign in Ligue 1 - he netted 38 league goals - the Swede appears to be getting better with age and would represent a fine coup for the Red Devils. 

But what are the details behind the potential move?

Well, it has been documented in the same report that the enigmatic forward is hoping to earn an extraordinary £300,000-a-week after-tax. The report suggests that United are prepared to pay the player's wages. 

Unsurprisingly, it appears that United aren't the only team who have attempted to secure the veteran's services. The report indicates that MLS outfit LA Galaxy have made a lucrative offer to the striker, while he also has an offer to join the Chinese Super League. 

But United and Mourinho appear to be favourites to land him. 

Things will change at United 

The job on the former Chelsea manager's hands shouldn't be underestimated, however; United may well have triumphed in the FA Cup this past weekend, but they have gone backwards under Van Gaal. 

There will be no Champions League football at Old Trafford next season, of course, and Mourinho must put together a team ready to make an impact on the Premier League title race. 

United fans will also demand a more attractive style of play - something that they did not get under the Dutchman's guidance. The addition of Mourinho and Ibrahimovic will absolutely change the dynamic at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Manchester United fans: do you expect Mourinho and Ibrahimovic to be at your club ahead of the 2016/17 season? Have your say below!
