According to real estate agency Proto Group Ltd, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has purchased a mansion in the north-west of Manchester ahead of a potential move to Old Trafford.
They have claimed involvement in the 34-year-old’s choice to pick his new home when he eventually completes the move to join Jose Mourinho’s army after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season at the expiration of his contract.
The Sweden football legend teased Manchester United fans last month when he simply smiled after being asked about the Red Devils’ interest in him.
‘We can confirm that we have found a new home for the footballer in Manchester, following the indications given by the club’ a statement read.
‘We struggled a bit at the beginning because Manchester is not Paris, nor Milan. Zlatan couldn’t understand that the architectural style can’t be the same, but in the end he was ‘forced to agree’ a move to an amazing villa with inner swimming pool and a very big garden.
‘Zlatan is a guy with huge sense of humour, we’ve watched the launching event of his sporting cloth brand and his comment on the house was kind of fun too: ‘I will adapt”.
Jose Mourinho has already completed his first signing of the season with Ivorian international Eric Bailly joining from Villarreal on a four-year deal.
