Zlatan Ibrahimovic: This is why I refused other offers to sign for Manchester United


New Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic says manager Jose Mourinho was one of the reasons why he moved to Old Trafford.

The 34-year-old was full of praise for the Portuguese as they will again work together after their season at Internazionale in the Serie A.

The former Sweden international signed a one-year contract with the club as he became Mourinho's second summer signing.

"Finally it's done," he told MUTV.

"I think my decision was pretty easy. It was more to make it possible, everything. I compare it with the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight - they said it would never happen but it happened.

"There's been a lot of talks but it came to the moment where everything is done, and now we start. Now the hard work starts, so I'm super happy.

"I have great memories [of my time at Internazionale with Jose Mourinho], the only regret I had with Jose was that I had a short time with him.

"I had one season. We won together, we enjoyed it together and had a great time together. I learned a lot, and I got to know him as a person, not only as a coach, and only positive things.

"He's a winner, I'm a winner and we know both what we want. We want to win. Wherever we go, we win. And we will win."
