Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is ‘ready to create more special memories in England’ after his move to Manchester United was finally confirmed. The 34-year-old became Jose Mourinho’s second signing of the summer on Friday and admitted he was ‘delighted’ to join United.
Mourinho, who worked with the striker at Inter Milan, said that his new signing needed no introduction, adding: ‘The statistics speak for themselves.’
The transfer was one of football’s worst-kept secrets and Ibrahimovic, who has signed on a one-year deal at Old Trafford, said he was relishing the opportunity. He said;
‘I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United and am looking forward to playing in the Premier League,’ he said.
‘It goes without saying that I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again. He is a fantastic manager and I am ready for this new and exciting challenge.
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my career so far and have some great memories. I am now ready to create more special memories in England.’
