Man United star desperate for world-class signing to be secured this summer

IbrahimovicManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have made it clear all year that they want a massive signing this summer and it seems their own players share the same view.

The Sun quotes United striker Anthony Martial as stating it would be ‘a joy’ to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic next season, as the race for the Swedish striker’s signature heats up.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Ibrahimovic sees his services become available in the summer with the expiration of his contract and the Premier League is the favoured destination for the veteran striker, who’s plied his trade in France, Italy, Holland and Spain during his career.

Whilst a number of clubs chase Ibrahimovic ahead of the summer window, Martial hopes he can line-up alongside the global superstar next season as part of a new-look attack for United.

“It would be nice to play alongside him. He is an extraordinary player — he won almost everything.”

United’s chances of Ibrahimovic will certainly be boosted if they manage to overhaul a four-point deficit and beat Manchester City to a top-four Premier League spot, as Ibrahimovic is yet to lift the Champions League in his career.

Is a strike-partnership of Martial and Ibrahimovic won that can win the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below!
