Various media outlets have claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s move to Manchester United is all but done.
If these reports are to be believed, the Sweden international will join the Manchester club following the ongoing Euro Cup.
However, German publication Bild has made a bold claim that Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have held secret talks with the 34-year-old.
Ibrahimovic has previously worked with Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain and playing for one of the biggest European clubs could prove to be a huge temptation for the striker.
It will be a huge setback for United if they fail to sign Ibrahimovic after coming this close to signing him.
Twitter, as usual, was quick to jump on the news and drew conclusions.

Unless Lewandowski is leaving Bayern, there is no way Zlatan will be joining them. He’s United bound, deal with it.

Zlatan going to Bayern would be a blessing in disguise.

Ibra with his ego is willing to sit on the bench to potentially win UCL at Bayern

I’d obviously love Ibra but if him joining Bayern meant Lewandowski joining Madrid meaning Benzema was free to join us, I’d rather that
