Manchester United legend Ferdinand would welcome Ibrahimovic to Premier League

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand hopes Zlatan Ibrahimovic can be tempted to the Premier League.

Ibra, 34, scored and assisted against Chelsea as Paris Saint-Germain knocked the Blues out of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Off contract in June, the Swede has been linked with Manchester United.

Ferdinand said: “This game was decided by clinical, top level play. He [Ibrahimovic] was at the centre of that both times — once with an assist, once with a goal. He basically ended the tie.

“He showed today that, even at 34, English clubs — as a free transfer — should be looking at this guy.

“To come over here and be the catalyst to win things.”
