United confirm signing of Ibrahimovic


Zlatan Ibrahimovic completed his move to Manchester United on a Friday with the flamboyant Swedish striker saying he was ready to create "more special memories" at the Old Trafford club.





Ibrahimovic had signed a one-year deal to join up again with the Premier League club's new manager Jose Mourinho.

'Ibrahimović, 34, made 180 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 156 goals, after breaking the Ligue 1 club's all-time league scoring record and winning a second straight domestic treble.
 He has won championships in four different leagues since beginning his professional career with Malmo in 1999. Zlatan represented his country 116 times, scoring 62 goals, before announcing his retirement from international football last month.'

"He has won the most important league championships in the world of football, now he has the opportunity to play in the best league in the world and I know he will grasp this opportunity and will work hard to help the team win titles."

"Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves," Mourinho said. "Ibra is one of the best strikers in the world and a player who always gives 100 percent.

"It goes without saying that I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again. He is a fantastic manager and I am ready for this new and exciting challenge."

"I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United and am looking forward to playing in the Premier League," he said in a club statement. I have thoroughly enjoyed my career so far and have some great memories. I am now ready to create more special memories in England," he added.
