The Swedish striker is a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain and has been offered a lucrative one-year deal by the Red Devils.

The 34-year-old had been top of new boss Jose Mourinho’s wanted list but finally removed the final barrier to his switch when he said he did not wish to be considered for Sweden duty at the Olympic Games in Rio.

That would have ruled him out of much of United’s pre-season and the first three Premier League fixtures – meaning that his second appearance in a red shirt could have been against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Ibrahimovic was top scorer in France’s Ligue 1 last term with 38 goals but did not score and had only seven shots as Sweden went out of Euro 2016 at the group stage.

United are understood to have booked him in for a medical on Friday.
