Manchester United announce signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It has finally happened. Manchester United have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and they have announced it in just the kind of way the stylish Swede would like.

A simple message on their Twitter feed read "Are you ready? It's #ZlatanTime..." and featured a 12-second video. Out of the darkness came the imposing figure of Ibrahimovic, who said his first words to his new fans.

It brings an end to months of speculation regarding his future in which time the 34-year-old has teased the media over his next destination.

He decided to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of his contract before the season had even ended and had been linked with Bayern Munich and a move to the Chinese Super League. However, the chance to work with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford proved too tempting to turn down.

Ibrahimovic is believed to have agreed a one-year contract worth £200,000-a-week and underwent a medical at United's Carrington HQ earlier on Friday. As expected, there were no problems and a deal has now been completed.


Needless to say, the arrival of one of the game's biggest stars has sent waves through the city of Manchester with many hoping to see the new star at hotspot Wings in the near future.

But some are already seeing his face plastered around the town. The people of Manchester can now view a glorious poster with the main man in central focus, stating: 'Manchester, Welcome to Zlatan'.

It ingeniously pays homage to a similar poster that was arranged by their city rivals Manchester City after Carlos Tevez made the controversial switch from Old Trafford to the Etihad.
