Man United to miss out on sensational signing if this doesn’t happen

IbrahimovicManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern playing darts are concerned about the latest reports they’ve heard today, which suggest they’ll miss out on a sensational signing.

The Telegraph suggests the Red Devils will miss out on landing Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer if they stick with Louis Van Gaal for next season.

Van Gaal’s position at Old Trafford has come under intense scrutiny this season but recently it’s seemed more and more likely that he’ll see out the remainder of his contract, which expires at the end of the 2016/17 season.

However, if Van Gaal does remain at Old Trafford then Ibrahimovic will snub a move due to a fall-out between the pair at Ajax over a decade ago. If Jose Mourinho is appointed though, the Swedish striker would seek a move as he is close with the former Chelsea boss.

Mourinho worked with Ibrahimovic during the pair’s time at Inter Milan, although Man United could miss out either way as Zlatan is desperate to continue playing in the Champions League.

Do United need to ensure they sign Ibrahimovic this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
