Ignore the rumours, Manchester United’s Megastore is *not* printing Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s name on shirts

Like we needed to tell you...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is Manchester United bound.

We know it. You know it. It’s been talked about so much these last few weeks that even your nan knows it.

With Sweden being dumped out of the Euros at the groups stages (somehow not quite as embarrassing as losing to Iceland in the last 16), many expect Zlatan’s move to United to be just around the corner.

In fact, one rumour on Thursday suggested that the announcement was so close that Old Trafford’s Megastore had even started printing ‘Ibrahimovic’ on the back of United shirts along with a number nine.

Look, there’s even pictures doing the rounds on Twitter and everything.


It *has* to be real, doesn’t it? Well… no, actually.

The idea of 34-year-old Zlatan swooping in to Old Trafford and helping himself to Anthony Martial’s number nine seemed a bit odd, as did the idea of the Megastore jumping the gun and printing it on the back of United shirts before the signing was even confirmed.

Just to be clear, JOE checked it out with the Megastore and learned it was, as we all suspected, abolute bollocks.

They confirmed that they hadn’t printed Ibrahimovic’s name on any shirts and added that the picture doing the rounds on Twitter appears to be a training shirt, not a United shirt.

Be patient United fans, it can’t be long.
