Ibrahimovic hints at Old Trafford switch

Zlatan Ibrahimovic hailed the impending arrival of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United – and playfully refused to deny he had been in touch with the Portuguese about a move to Old Trafford.
The Sweden international – set to leave Paris Saint-Germain following the expiration of his contract – suggested he was keen on a reunion with the former Chelsea boss, who is expected to be named as Louis van Gaal’s successor at United this week.
Speaking as Sweden prepare for Euro 2016, Ibrahimovic – who worked with Mourinho at Inter – fanned the flames of speculation and revealed he has already made up his mind on where to go next.
“I think it’s great that Manchester United could appoint Mourinho,” he said. “You want action, you bring Mourinho.
“I believe he is the man to bring them back to the top and he knows what he is doing.
“I had a great time with him at Inter. If we have the chance to work together again, I don’t know – let’s see how it plays out.
“The future is written. I made my choice a long time ago. I just have to push the button.
“I have spoken with him every day since I left Inter. There are concrete offers from the Premier League, but I don’t give guarantees.”
Asked specifically whether he had been made an offer by United, Ibrahimovic, after chuckling his way through a long pause, said: “Let’s see what happens.”
The 34-year-old also dismissed any concerns about whether his advancing years affected his ability to play at the highest level.
Ibrahimovic continued: “I’m only warming up. I have proved age is just a number. Everything is in your head. If I want to make it I will do it.”
