Agent responds to Man Utd rumors, says everyone's in for a surprise

Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester United, since it appeared he'd be leaving Paris at the end of the season.

The rumors have only gathered pace, after the appointment of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, but his agent, Mino Raiola, has hinted things could turn out to be very different to what is being reported in the media.

Raiola told Swedish paper Expressen:"We have not decided on anything yet. I think there will be a surprise in the end. Everyone is harping only on Manchester United, United, United, that's why I do not talk with anyone. For long all journalists are asking the wrong questions. You also!"

Raiola also ruled out the possibility of his client retiring at the end of the season, but refused to talk about his next destination.

He added:"If I live, the answer is no. I'm living so it does not happen. It's the only thing I can guarantee that he will not retire. But where he will play next season, I can not say anything about it."

It's only obvious Manchester United will have to beat some competition to sign a big name like Ibrahimovic, and Raiola also confirmed several clubs in Europe and outside are interested in his client.

“There are some clubs in England, a few clubs in Europe, some outside Europe, but everyone assumes he must go to Manchester United and it’s not true.”
This could very well be a case of Raiola forcing Manchester United to pay higher wages for Ibrahimovic, or maybe there might really be a surprise in the end.
