Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to undergo a medical in Manchester after Euro 2016.

This is according to Sky Sports, who understand the Sweden international will sign for Manchester United despite fresh reports linking him with a move to Bayern Munich.

Zlatan will sign a one-year deal with the Red Devils - having already agreed personal terms - following the completion of his routine medical after this summer’s European Championships in France.

Sky add that negotiations between Ibrahimovic’s representatives and United took longer than initially expected, which meant there was insufficient time for the medical to take place prior to Euro 2016.

The 34-year-old, however, is understood to be “relaxed” about the situation - as are Manchester United - safe in the knowledge that the deal will be finalised next month.

Zlatan made Euro 2016 debut on Monday

Zlatan made his first appearance at Euro 2016 with the Swedish national team against the Republic of Ireland on Monday afternoon.

Although he didn’t score, it was the former PSG star who provided the cross from which Ciaran Clark turned the ball into his own net.

Ahead of the match, Zlatan - in typically egotistical fashion - warned Ireland that “the legend can still deliver”.

"I feel I am getting better and better with every year that passes," he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "I have been dominating wherever I go. I have no issue about that.

"I am very confident. I go into the tournament with a strong season behind me and I am here in France, where I have been living for the last few years, to enjoy."

Zlatan in the form of his life

With a career-best tally of 50 goals in 51 appearances for PSG this season, it’s difficult to argue with Ibrahimovic.

However, scoring goals in Ligue 1 and scoring goals in the Premier League are two different challenges entirely - and some United fans are a little concerned that they might be signing a superstar a little past his best.

Jose Mourinho, though, has an excellent relationship with the charismatic striker and appears to be optimistic that he can still do a job for the team.

Zlatan to wear No. 9 shirt?

Rumours are rife that Zlatan will be handed the number nine shirt, with the number seven making its way from Memphis Depay to Anthony Martial.

That, however, remains unconfirmed for the time being.
