You’ll never need to convince the punters in the Transfer Tavern to have an afternoon tipple, though frequenting our jovial old hall does allow those in to scour the net for rumours and reports.
Well, the Manchester United supporting locals who’ve been checking Instagram were given a huge surprise today.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he will join the Red Devils this summer, on his official page.
The superstar Swede has been strongly linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams for many months now, as his time with Paris Saint-Germain wound down.
Having established himself as one of the elite players on the continent for much of the past decade, Ed Woodward and United finally have the world star they have been craving so much.
The 34-year old worked with new boss Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan a number of years ago to great success and will link up with his new team on a free after opting to leave the French capital.
