The iconic Sweden international has netted 39 times in 42 appearances across all competitions this season but looks set to leave PSG on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.
Sky Sports claim the veteran striker has ‘indicated a willingness’ to move to Old Trafford ahead of next season, snubbing interest from their Premier League rivals in the process.
But the 34-year-old will only complete the transfer if under-fire manager Louis van Gaal leaves the club this summer, having infamously criticised the Dutchman in his 2011 autobiography ‘I am Zlatan‘.
Admittedly, it’s looking increasingly likely van Gaal will be sacked before next season. United’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday has left them four points off a Champions League place.
Sky Sports further report that a Chinese club has already tabled a two-year contract worth £56million.
