Zlatan Ibrahimovic risks losing out a bonus of almost £4million from current club PSG if he joins Manchester United before his contract officially expires at the end of June.
The Swede, who made his decision to leave the French champions at the end of the season months ago, is expected to link up with Jose Mourinho at United on a one-year contract.
However, negotiations could be put on hold after it emerged in the Sun that PSG won’t pay Ibrahimovic a £3.9million loyalty bonus if he agrees to signs for United before the end of his deal with Les Parisiens.
Ibrahimovic’s agent is reportedly in talks with PSG about potentially transferring the money earlier.
United were hopeful of wrapping a deal up for the 34-year-old before the start of Euro 2016 but those plans couldnow be put on hold as a result of this revelation.
The Red Devils remain the clear favourites to sign Ibrahimovic and they are willing to pay him a mammoth £300,000-a-week.
Ibrahimovic may not be getting any younger but he has just enjoyed the most prolific goalscoring season of his career, netting 50 times in all competitions for PSG as they completed a domestic treble.
“I have proved that I still have a young mind,” Ibrahimovic said at a training camp with Sweden last week. “The mental part is 50 per cent of football and that has never been a problem for me.
“Whether I am 34 or 35, I have never had a better season than this. I am still developing as a player. But it is all about getting the job done – and I do a hell of a job.”
