Former Paris Saint-German forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is heavily rumoured to be linked with the Special One at Old Trafford when he resumes next summer. The Swedish striker who is currently out of contract, won one of his previous Serie A title with Jose Mourinho while he was in charge of Inter.
The Swedish striker who is looking for a new club after his departure with French champions Paris Saint-Germain, is also being tempted to move to the MLS for a huge pay. Manchester United are however ready to give him an offer which would make him have a re-think about considering heading to MLS.
The former Barcelona forward is said to be looking for a deal which would see him earn a similar net salary to his €350,000 weekly wage at PSG, and experts at United are putting up a package that would persuade the 34-year-old to move to Old Trafford by summer.
As part of the deal being reviewed, Ibrahimovic would receive an £8 million tax-free signing-on bonus, with a £250,000 weekly salary to come over the course of his 12-month contract. He would also be offered an option to sign for a second year as part of the initial agreement, taking his potential total earnings over two years to £34m.
Ibrahimovic, is yet decide to choose MLS over the Premier League, with his wife Helena Seger having a sportswear business which would benefit massively from a move to the United States rather than Manchester.
However, United are hoping that the lure of a massive contract and a continued career in European football will be enough to secure a deal to bring one of the world’s most recognizable football faces to Old Trafford.
