Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s touted move to Manchester United looks unlikely after Louis van Gaal hinted the striker was too old.
The 34-year-old Sweden international looks set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer and he is believed to favour a move to the Premier League. “We need to improve our selection [squad], because when I took over we had six or seven players above 33 years old,” Van Gaal told Swedish TV station Viasat.
I saw the game against Manchester City, and it was a big disappointment for me because he should have scored two times at least. “Paris Saint-Germain is Zlatan and that is fantastic.
When a manager like me, who favours the team [above the individual], is saying that, that is a compliment for him. “But he’s already 34 and I just spoke about the age [of the players] I let go.”
