Sweden’s Coach reveals the exact date when Zlatan Ibrahimovic will sign for Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dominated headlines for last 24 hours after agreeing personal terms ahead of the much fancied move to Manchester United.

ESPN confirmed earlier today that Ibra’s agent Mino Riola has agreed the contract details with Red Devils and is now waiting for Jose Mourinho to hold discussions with the player over the summer transfer.

Amidst all this speculation, Zlatan is set to play in Sweden’s pre-Euro friendly against Wales this Sunday. Then the Swedish camp has a two days off from training and that window is seen as the time when the 34-year old will fly to England to complete his Old Trafford switch.

Speaking with the reporters earlier today, coach Erik Hamren said“We have days off. We plan our activities and the players can act based on that, I’m not going to speculate about such things.”

Hamren may have decided not to speculate on the matters, but he gave all the exact details we were looking for. Zlatan’s move to Manchester United could go down as the biggest commercial transfer of the modern era.

While his influence on the pitch is incredible, Zlatan’s global appeal as a player is unparalleled. He by all means is one of the top-5 most popular athletes in World Football.

One of the economists drew a projection last week stating that Zlatan’s shirt sales this summer alone would recover the £30-40million deficit club suffered for not qualifying for Champions League next season.

These are the kind of numbers we are looking at and if the mercurial striker decides to bang in goals for fun, titles would become a regular occurrence as well.

At present, Zlatan is tipped to sign a one-year deal with an option of extending it further if United qualify for the Champions League in 2017/18.
