Zlatan Ibrahimovic will sign a one–year contract with Manchester United, SkySports reports.

The news comes after Ibrahimovic said last week that he had decided which club he would transfer to this summer, but declined to reveal his destination. He had been rumored to be considering a deal with United, telling reporters he has a “great relationship” with Jose Mourinho, the club’s new manager. 

The 35-year-old Swedish striker had played the last four seasons with Paris Saint-Germain. He also reportedly received offers from teams in England, Italy and outside Europe. 

Ibrahimovic scored 38 goals domestically this season for PSG and was named France’s player of the year a third time.
