Man United fans react to Ibrahimovic’s tweet on departure

Manchester United confirmed yesterday that veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left the club with immediate effect, as he has his sights set on a move to MLS.

The Swedish frontman enjoyed a fruitful debut season in England football, before it was cut short by a knee injury sustained in the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht.
