Zlatan Ibrahimovic will undergo a medical with Manchester United next week ahead of a move to Old Trafford, Sky Sports has revealed.
The Sweden international will become Jose Mourinho's second summer signing.
He failed to impress for Sweden at the Euro 2016 Championship but is expected to be given a leading role at Manchester United.
The 34-year-old retired from international football at the end of the tournament and is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Red Devils.
The medical is expected to be a formality.
At the start of the month, the experienced striker rubbished claims that he is too old to lead the offensive department in Mourinho's squad.
"I feel I am getting better and better with every year that passes," he said.
"I have been dominating wherever I go. I have no issue about that.
"I am very confident. I go into the tournament with a strong season behind me and I am here in France, where I have been living for the last few years, to enjoy."
