Superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic drops Manchester United hint?

Coral have cut the odds for PSG frontman Zlatan Ibrahimovic to join Manchester United into 2/1 after the Sweden star made comments about Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal.

Prolific poacher Ibrahimovic, now 33, has now been linked by the tabloid press with United, who Van Gaal suggested could be making further signings this summer.

In a recent interview, Ibrahimovic highlighted differences between himself and Van Gaal when both were at Ajax, but that does not make the Swede averse to working with the Dutch coach.

“He (Van Gaal) was a director in Ajax, and the way he is working is not the way I work,” said Ibrahimovic. “At the end, I think he is professional and I am professional.

“Whoever I work with, I never had this kind of problems, because at the end I need to do my job, he needs to do his job. And I think a lot of fights would happen, but that’s something I like.”

Following the sale of Robin van Persie to Turkish giants Fenerbahce and the Red Devils not taking up their option to sign former loanee Radamel Falcao permanently, Man Utd have just two senior strikers on their books, Wayne Rooney and injured Javier Hernandez.

Van Gaal has also previously said he’s happy with his attacking options at Old Trafford following the big money capture of Memphis Depay, who was Eredivisie top scorer at Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven last term.

In three seasons with PSG, Ibrahimovic has scored 106 times in 126 games, an 84 per cent strike rate. Such impressive form shows he is getting better with age, and United briefly took compatriot Henrik Larsson on loan during his mid-30s.

Man Utd could offer Ibrahimovic European football, and are 20/1 chances to make a winning return to the Champions League. The player has won domestic titles in every country he’s played in, and it’s a 6/1 shot that the Red Devils take back the Premier League trophy.
