Zlatan Ibrahimovic teases Manchester United fans with announcement

Football News

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has sent waves of excitement through Manchester United fans after confirming he will make a "big announcement" on June 7 in what he described as "this summer's big bomb".

The Swede's future has been a hot topic in recent months after he decided against extending his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

Although a number of clubs from across the world have thrown money at the 34-year-old, it is widely believed that he has agreed on a lucrative one-year contract with the Red Devils after talks with new manager Jose Mourinho.

Bayern Munich and LA Galaxy have both been credited with an interest while it is also believed an offer of £1m-a-week came from the Chinese Super League, but Mourinho's arrival at United has given them the edge.

Ibrahimovic worked under the Special One at Inter Milan and they have shared a close relationship ever since. The chance to reunite with the Portuguese coupled with the pull of the Premier League appears to have coaxed the charismatic striker to Old Trafford.

And now the player himself has hinted that the move could be confirmed before Euro 2016 kicks off, confirming that he will make an announcement on Tuesday which he hopes we will all enjoy.


Ibrahimovic told Swedish TV: “There will be a big announcement on the 7th. It will be this summer’s big bomb. It feels good, feels better than good. A lot will happen with this news. Hopefully, you’ll all enjoy it.”

Asked to clarify what the announcement would be about, Ibrahimovic said: "Come and see on the 7th."

A twist

However, it has already been suggested that the announcement will be Ibrahimovic's new clothing line and will have nothing to do with Manchester United at all.

It would be no surprise if Ibrahimovic was teasing the media, which he has done countless times in the past. The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Ajax player is due to announce his collection at 5pm tomorrow and reports have suggested he is simply paying reference to that.


Indeed, according to The Sun, Ibrahimovic's move to Manchester United has been delayed by an agreement between him and former club PSG. The striker is under contract at Parc des Princes until June 30 and stands to lose a massive £4m loyalty bonus if he announces his new club before then.

His agent Mina Raiola has been trying to negotiate an earlier payment as a thank you to Ibrahimovic, who left the French capital as a legend after becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer.
