Zlatan Ibrahimovic will rejoin former manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United next season, the Sweden star has confirmed.

A free agent since his lucrative £1.1m-a-month contract expired at Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Ibrahimovic took to Instagram to tell United fans "I am coming" underneath a photo of the club's crest.

"Time to let the world know," he wrote. "My next destination is @manchesterunited."

Ahead of Euro 2016, at which Zlatan flattered to deceive and failed to score a goal, the striker talked up his experience of working with new United manager Mourinho at Inter Milan in the 2008/09 season.

“I have a great relationship with Mourinho and we are in contact, but not [just] in the last weeks – we have been talking for many years. I have spoken with him every day since I left Inter Milan,” he said.

“If you want action you bring Mourinho. I believe he is the man to take them back to the top. Wherever he went he has won. He knows what he is doing. If you want to win, you bring Mourinho.

“I had a fantastic time with him when I was working with him. When I left Inter I said we had had a short time together but a great time. If we will work together again, I don’t know. Let’s see how things play out.”
