Zlatan Ibrahimovic “will pull a surprise,” said agent Mino Raiola, who assured “it’s not true he’s going to Manchester United.”
The Swede is a free agent when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires next month and has been linked with Milan or Inter.
“There are some clubs in England, a few clubs in Europe, some outside Europe, but everyone assumes he must go to Manchester United and it’s not true,” Raiola told Swedish paper Expressen.
"We could well pull a surprise at the end. Will he retire? Absolutely not."
There have been multiple reports Ibra will be essentially a player-assistant manager with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
“Ibrahimovic is a star and the club that gets him doesn’t need to pay a transfer fee. That means Ibrahimovic, who just finished a record season at PSG, can get an extra-high salary. He is in a good bargaining position.
“It is not important to get something done quickly, as I care only about arranging a move based on quality. We are not in a hurry.
“It’s about doing the right thing at the right time. Let’s see what happens.”
