Ibrahimovic: Arsenal, Man City close. But only Mourinho convinced me...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he only came to England due to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Four goals in his first four games for the Red Devils have the striker an instant hit with the Old Trafford faithful.

Ibrahimovic revealed: “I was close to moving to the Premier League twice – once with Arsenal and then Manchester City.

“But it never happened and I don't need to play in the Premier League.

“Mourinho is the mastermind, the masterbrain.

“He knows what he needs to do to win. I learned a lot from him at Inter.

"Who wouldn't want to have Mourinho as manager?"
