The well-known Swedish player Zlatan Ibrahimovic is close to completing his move to Manchester United in a deal that club fans have been waiting for months for.

Ibrahimovic, 34, is expected to sign contracts for the Red Devils for one year before the end of the week.

Ibrahimovic is the third Manchester United deal in the current transfer period, after contracting Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho to replace Dutchman Louis Van Vhal last month.

The English club also finalized the transfer deal of Ivorian defender Luis Bailey, 22, from Spain’s Villarreal for 30 million pounds.

Ibrahimovic removed the last obstacle to joining Manchester after leaving the international club to retire after the Swedish national team exit from the first round of the European Football Cup currently being held in France.

With this, Ibrahimovic will not participate with his country in the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this year.

Ibrahimovic won the league title in 4 different countries, but he has not played in the Premier League Premier League before.

Manchester United have raised their financial offer for the 27-year-old Armenian striker Henrique Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund, awaiting a response from the German side.
