The Swede himself announced on Thursday that he would be joining United this summer, posting a message on social media accompanied by a picture of the club's badge.
Ibrahimovic made 180 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 156 goals. He has won championships in four different leagues since beginning his professional career with Malmo in 1999.
