Zlatan Ibrahimovic teases Man United fans about his expected Old Trafford arrival


The Manchester United fans who have been getting all hysterical about the prospect of Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing in a Red Devils shirt next season will have to wait a little longer for any confirmation the striker is headed their way.

We all know that the 34-year-old loves to court the limelight - both on and off the pitch - and it appears he is intent on enjoying the interest around where he will play next season after again teasing fans about his plans during a live-streamed Facebook Q&A.

Ibrahimovic suggested at the weekend that he would be making a big announcement about his future on Tuesday, which got everyone wondering if he was going to confirm his United move.

In short, he didn't confirm anything. But in typical "Zlatan style" he did leave the door ajar for yet more speculation that he was set to be reunited with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Ibrahimovic was asked directly by an audience member if he could confirm he was going to be in Manchester next season. He replied: "There is no confirmation. There is no saying yes. So you will have to have patience.

"You are a journalist, no? I want you to keep wondering where I will go, and keep making stories, because I enjoy it while the stories go out.

"When I feel tired (of that), I will let you know where my next destination is".

Ibrahimovic was appearing at a Paris launch event for his new sportswear range A-Z, and when asked earlier where his next club would be, he said: "My future is A-Z. Follow A-Z and you will see my future. And - the future is A-Z."

The inquisitor followed up by simply saying "and Manchester United?"

Ibrahimovic replied: "They will be wearing A-Z in Manchester also. Don't worry - it is coming there."
