Jose Mourinho has reportedly told Wayne Rooney that he does want to bring Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United this summer.
This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Portuguese tactician confirmed to Rooney over the phone that he is targeting the 34-year-old forward.
Ibrahimovic has long been recognised as one of the best strikers in world football and could join the Red Devils on a free transfer before the start of next season.

The enigmatic forward may well be approaching the latter stages of his career, but he is showing no signs of slowing down.
In fact, as PSG cruised to Ligue 1 success last term, Ibrahimovic netted 38 league goals - 17 more than any other player.
It's safe to say, then, that the striker would represent a significant coup for Mourinho and co. at Old Trafford.
United endured a tricky time in front of goal under Dutchman Louis van Gaal last season, often struggling to create and score goals.
In Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, the Red Devils have two of the most exciting young forwards in Europe, but adding Ibrahimovic to the ranks would completely change the dynamic of their attacking line.
Mourinho will be well aware that he must act in the upcoming transfer window. There could be a number of changes at the club over the coming months.
