Zlatan Ibrahimovic will undergo a medical with Manchester United next week ahead of a move to Old Trafford, according to Sky sources.

Ibrahimovic, who retired from international football following Sweden's group stage exit at Euro 2016, will sign a one-year contract at United following the completion of his medical.

Personal terms on a one-year contract were agreed prior to Euro 2016 after negotiations between Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola and United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. 

The talks took longer than expected and a move could therefore not be completed before Euro 2016 began.

Sky Sports News HQ understand United do not expect any issues with the medical and the 34-year-old is said to be in excellent physical condition. 

Ibrahimovic, all being well, will link up with Jose Mourinho for the second time in his career, having worked with the Portuguese during their time together at Inter Milan.
