Football fans love that Ibrahimovic announced his Man United move *before* the club

How very Zlatan.

Simon Lloyd

Zlatan Ibrahimovic *will* be a Manchester United player… or at least, that’s what he tells us.

At the time of writing, there’s still no official word from Mr Ibrahimovic’s future employers, almost certainly making him the first player in the history of Manchester United to announce his own transfer before the club.

It’s not quite reached Peter Odemwingie to QPR levels yet – he’s only announced it on his Instagram, not driven himself to a training ground for a medical – but football fans the world over are impressed that Zlatan has taken matters into his own hands.

If any player was going to announce his next club before the club does, it was always going to be Zlatan, wasn’t it?

Meanwhile, United’s official Twitter page continues to retweet fan tweets about Antonio Valencia…

Does the club even know they’re signing Zlatan? Has this all been orchestrated by the man himself? Only time will tell.
