Zlatan Ibrahimovic has done it again. Ibra does things in style and he's made the much-anticipated-but-expected announcement of joining English Premier League giants Manchester United on Instagram.

There was much speculations, but all that has been put to rest now.

"Time to let the world know. My next destination is Manchester United," is how Ibra made his big announcement.

The 34-year-old player will be Manchester United's second signing under new coach Jose Mourinho, who previously signed Ivorian defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal.

Ibrahimovic is presently available on a free transfer following the expiry of his Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) contract at the end of the season. He has helped PSG capture the Ligue 1 title in all the four seasons, scoring 154 goals in 179 games since joining the French capital club in the summer of 2012 from AC Milan.

He has an impressive CV as he featured in some of the best clubs in Europe. Having started his career at Swedish club Malmo, he went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Milan and PSG.

He has also been a prolific scorer for his country with 62 goals in 114 matches.

United, who finished fifth in the Premier League last season are yet to confirm the move.

The Swedish superstar forward becomes the second signing of new United boss Jose Mourinho after that of highly rated Ivory Coast centre-back Eric Bailly from the Spanish outfit Villarreal.

Ibrahimovic reunites with Mourinho, after they enjoyed a good relationship while together at Italians Inter Milan.

The Swede had toyed with questioners for weeks about where he would be going and it will be his first time playing in the Premier League.
