Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to tease over his future as a Manchester United move has dragged out longer than expected.
The 34-year-old was knocked out of Euro 2016 along with his Swedish teammates after the group stages and Ibrahimovic retired from international football soon after.
This was supposed to have sped up the process of Man United announcing the player as their second of the summer after Eric Bailly signed from Villarreal earlier this month.
He has remained quiet on the possible transfer while dropping bombshells on social media and in interviews to entice a reaction from fans. In a playful fashion, he has gone and done it again, this time declaring that he will be bringing his chef wherever he ends up next season.
Ibrahimovic has spent the last four years at Paris Saint-Germain where he enjoyed unprecedented success in Ligue 1 and in front of goal. The former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker has worked with Jose Mourinho in the past and has previously stated he would die for the Portuguese manager.
United have been lacking a consistent goal threat that can physically impose himself on defenders while also altering the way a team must defend. In Ibrahimovic, you are guaranteed goals and the kind of temperament that can encourage an entire team to believe they can win any game.
Mourinho is rebuilding at United and will need a player or two of Ibrahimovic’s calibre to mount a meaningful challenge on the Premier League with Pep Guardiola going to Manchester City, Antonio Conte arriving at Chelsea soon and Jurgen Klopp building something at Liverpool.
