Fellow Sweden international John Guidetti states that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will “settle in perfectly” at Manchester United, and the club have gained a “world-class player and person”
Sky Sports have stated that Ibrahimovic is close to a move to Old Trafford, and is said to be making an announcement sometime on Tuesday, potentially to announce his ultimate decision on a move to a new club.
Guidetti knows Manchester well, having been on City’s books for seven years as a youth player, but after failing to make an impact there, he galvanised his career with Celtic and most recently, Celta Vigo. He strongly believes his superstar international compatriot will have no problem handling the city – or its unpredictable weather.
“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.”
