Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tantalised Manchester United fans by revealing that a "big announcement" is scheduled for Tuesday when it's expected the Sweden international will confirm he is moving to Old Trafford.

The striker, who is a free agent having seen his contract at PSG expire, is understood to have agreed personal terms with the Red Devils. The latest reports suggested all that stood in the way of the move was Ibrahimovic being given assurances by manager Jose Mourinho over his role in the team.

It appears those assurances may have been received with Ibrahimovic readying fans for an announcement tomorrow.

"There will be a big announcement on June 7. It will be this summer's big bomb," Ibrahimovic told Swedish television following Sweden's 3-0 Euro 2016 warm-up win over Wales.

"It feels good, feels better than good. A lot will happen with this news, so hopefully you'll all enjoy."

While it's thought that the announcement will confirm his move to Manchester United, it's possible Ibrahimovic is simply teasing fans. The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Ajax player is unveiling a new clothing line at 5pm tomorrow and could simply be making reference to that.

Asked to clarify what the announcement would be about, Ibrahimovic told reporters.

"Come and see on the 7th."

It's understood all parties are keen to resolve the deal prior to Euro 2016, which starts on Friday.
