The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were hoping for big things from Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season.
The Swede moved to Old Trafford last season in a move that many expected to propell the Red Devils up the table. Sure, he was past his best, but he had proven for PSG that he still had plenty left in the tank.
Indeed, in typical Ibrahimovic fashion, he looked as good as ever for his new team, bagging a pretty remarkable 17 league goals in his debut campaign in England.
However, an injury brought his season to a premature end, and unfortunately for him, it has all been downhill since then. Unable to regain his fitness and his place in the team, the writing has been on the wall for a while for the 36-year-old.
It came as no surprise, then, to our resident Man Utd fans to hear reports that he is set for the exit door. Reports from both ESPN and the BBC have indicated that he’s set to quit the club in favour of LA Galaxy.
The Man Utd fans over on the Red Devils’ Subbreddit page have been reacting to this news this afternoon, and whilst most fans recognise the time is right, they all appear to have the same regret – they just wish that it didn’t end this way.
Of course, they’re referring to his injury status. Indeed, it could have been very different had he been fit at the start of the campaign, but it wasn’t to be.
Take a look at what fans have been saying below…
