As of Thursday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will no longer be a Paris Saint-Germain player, opening the door for him to complete his long-awaited move to Manchester United as soon as Friday.
News of an agreement between both sides leaked earlier this month, but the former Sweden international decided to hold off the big announcement until June 30, when his contract with the Ligue 1 champions expires, so that he could capitalise on his loyalty bonus and avoid fiscal penalties by PSG.
The proven goalscorer fueled the rumour mill in a press conference during Euro 2016 that he would announce his new team after his last game for the Blagult, which turned out to be a 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the group stage.
Free of national team and PSG obligations, Ibrahimovic could put pen to paper for the Red Devils as early as Friday in order to begin a new page in his illustrious career, which has also gone through the Eredivisie, Serie A , and La Liga.
The former AC Milan , Inter , and Juventus forward had a phenomenal scoring tally with the Parisian club, netting 156 goals in 180 appearances in all competitions.
