Manchester United are getting a “world-class person and player” in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to Sweden team-mate John Guidetti.
Ibrahimovic has promised “a big announcement” on Tuesday afternoon, and Sky sources say a deal to join United is close to completion.
And Celta Vigo forward Guidetti, who was on Man City’s books for seven years, says Ibrahimovic’s famed ego will not prevent him nurturing the likes of Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.
“I think he knows the Manchester weather like I do,” Guidetti said. “He will settle – anywhere he has gone, he has performed.
“He is a world-class player and is a world-class person. Any team that gets him should be very grateful.
“He is fantastic – the way he speaks with the younger players, the way he demands quality. It is a true pleasure to play with him.
“There’ll never be another Zlatan – he’s a one-off. The way he talked and behaved has inspired me.”
