Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent has rubbished reports that Paris Saint-German striker has agreed a deal to join Manchester United.

Reports in France have suggested that United have offered the 34-year-old, who announced last week that he would be leaving PSG, a one-year deal with the option of a second year.

Journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, who broke the news that Anthony Martial would be joining the Red Devils, tweeted on Monday night that an agreement had been reached.

Bouhafsi added in a further tweet in French that: "Zlatan Ibrahimovic has requested guarantees on the #MUFC project and especially on the name of the coach who will lead the club next season".

It's unclear whether the Swedish international's preference would be Louis van Gaal or a replacement for the Dutchman.

However, according to Ibrahimovic's agent, Mino Raiola, there is no truth to the story.

"In this world we have to accept some journalists use their imagination and make things up," Raiola told Sky Sports. "The story is not factual."

Ibrahimovic leaves PSG having scored an incredible 154 goals in 179 games in a four-season spell with the French club.
