One of the most prolific strikers in world football at the moment, Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed earlier this season that he will not be extending his contract at Paris after the end of the season.

This has put a number of clubs on alert along with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United who are all set to fight it out in the transfer window this summer.

And recent reports suggest that Manchester United might be leading the race for the signature of the Swedish International.

According to leading football agent Mesrun Izzet, Jose Mourinho, a manager who is tipped off to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, has approached the 34-year old recently.

The lack of silverware under the Dutchman might see the club replace him with the Portuguese genius and it is understood the Mourinho has been a big fan of the 34-year old PSG striker.

Mourinho wanted to bring him to Chelsea at his time at the club but failed to do so. However, his dream might be fulfilled if the manager is able to lure Zlatan to United after he takes charge of the Old Trafford outfit.

Zlatan has won 12 leagues titles in his last 14 seasons and is expected to prefer a team that can offer him Champions League football next season.

With the likes of Chelsea unable to fulfill the requirement next season, Manchester United might have the edge in landing the superstar.

However, United themselves are not in the greatest place for a top-4 finish and Izzet revealed that if Mourinho can take charge of United next season and they can finish in the top 4 this season, United have a great chance of signing their man.

Mino Rialo, the agent of the star player is a close aid to Izzet who insists that the Red Devils can lure Ibrahimovic this summer if these conditions are met.

Though the Swede is expected to cost nothing to but from PSG, he is likely to demand hefty wages and though it will not be a problem for a club like United, they will have to make sure that it is money well spent in a season of transition.

Do you think Zlatan will wear a Manchester United jersey next season?
