Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reportedly join Manchester United this summer as assistant manager to Jose Mourinho.

Express Sport understands Mourinho will replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford next week despite yesterday’s FA Cup final victory over Crystal Palace.

Ibrahimovic confirmed earlier this month he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season after a four-year spell at the Parc des Princes.

Numerous clubs including United, Arsenal, West Ham and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Sweden international.

But according to Swedish outlet Sportsbladet, United have won the race for the 34-year-old’s signature and he will link up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

The striker will be joining in the shock role of assistant manager, leaving Ryan Giggs’ future in doubt.

However the report adds he will continue in a playing capacity during his fist 12 months at Old Trafford.
