– Zlatan Ibrahimovic will join Manchester United this summer
– Ibrahimovic confirmed the deal
– The player speaks about his decision
The former PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has explained his Manchester United transfer.
Ibrahimovic, 34, was available as a free agent after his Paris Saint-Germain contract expired on Thursday and the striker has confirmed reports that he would join United.
On the day he became a free agent, he wrote on Instagram: “Time to let the world know. My next destination is @manchesterunited #iamcoming”
He said: “I’m super excited. I’m super super happy. Finally it’s done! But now we start, now the hard work starts. My decision was pretty easy. I compare it with Mayweather-Pacquiao fight: they said it would never happen, but it happened.”
Mourinho and Ibrahimovic worked together at Inter in 2008-09, and Zlatan noted: “I have great memories, the only regret I had with Jose is that I had a short time with him. We had one season, but we won together. He’s a winner, I’m a winner. We know what we want, and wherever we go we will win.”
He stressed: “Wherever I came I won, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I know what I want, I come to win, but behind everything is hard work. I come to win, I don’t come to waste time, I don’t come to look at the weather. I come to win, and that is my objective. We play for the UEFA Europa League, but in everything we play to win. We will do all the things we need to do to reach our main goal.”
