VIDEO: Has Ibrahimovic confirmed a move to Old Trafford?

720p-notextAs Jose Mourinho finalises his move to Manchester United, talk now turns to the players he will bring in to help take United back to the top.

The most obvious area that needs work is defence, Daley Blind has performed admirably at centre back for United this past season, but rather than operating with a midfielder in the role, Jose will likely go out and sign a player for the position.

Depending on what he does, Jose could also need need a replacement for David De Gea although reports state that the Spaniard would like to stay at Old Trafford and work under Mourinho.

So attention now turns to the attack.

A return of just 49 goals in the league is United’s lowest in a Premier League season, and was only marginally better than Sunderland who barely escaped relegation.

The goalscoring onus rested on the shoulders of youngster Anthony Martial, a £36m signing last summer who was new to the league as well as Marcus Rashford who joined the first team just after the turn of the year. Both did well but were expected to be helped by captain Wayne Rooney.

Rooney’s return of just 8 goals in the league confirms what has long been suspected; the forward is running out of steam (he hasn’t scored more than 20 goals in a season since 2011/2012) and this was evident in the decision to play the England captain in midfield as the season reached it’s climax.

United will be looking at strikers, and former PSG star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be just the man to fill the goalscoring void.

Whilst in the twilight of his career, the Swede scores goals in abundance and is available on a free after leaving PSG at the end of the season.

The 34 year old called a presser today to discuss his future and of course his relationship with Mourinho and a potential move to United were discussed, prompting this interesting response.

Watch for yourself and decide, is a move to Old Trafford on the cards?
