Manchester United have announced the signing of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 34-year-old Swede was a free agent after his contract at Paris St Germain expired at the end of last season.

"I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United and am looking forward to playing in the Premier League," he told

"It goes without saying that I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again. He is a fantastic manager and I am ready for this new and exciting challenge.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my career so far and have some great memories. I am now ready to create more special memories in England."

Ibrahimovic will be reunited with Jose Mourinho, who managed him at Inter Milan between 2008 and 2009.

"Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves," said the Red Devils boss.

"Ibra is one of the best strikers in the world and a player who always gives 100 per cent.

"He has won the most important league championships in the world of football, now he has the opportunity to play in the best league in the world and I know he will grasp this opportunity and will work hard to help the team win titles.

"I am certain that his talent will delight fans at Old Trafford next season and that his experience will be invaluable in helping to develop the younger players in the squad."

Press Association Sport understands Ibrahimovic has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.
