Zlatan Ibrahimovic remained tight-lipped on his future after Sweden's 3-0 win over Wales on Sunday

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has got tongues wagging after revealing he will make a "big announcement" on Tuesday afternoon.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Sweden international and the striker announced he will soon unveil his destiny having spent the last few weeks playing cat-and-mouse with the world's media.

Sky sources reported on June 4 that the 34-year-old, whose contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired, was Old Trafford-bound and could conclude a deal before the start of Euro 2016.

Following Sweden's 3-0 win over Wales on Sunday, Sky Sports News HQ reporter Geraint Hughes asked Ibrahimovic if he was heading to the Premier League (see above video to watch his reaction).

He continued to keep football fans guessing by speaking on Swedish TV about his plans this week as his team prepare for their Euro 2016 Group E opener against the Republic of Ireland on June 13.
