Premier League transfer news: Ibrahimovic, Perisic to Manchester United, Sergio Aguero to Chelsea

ZLATAN Ibrahimovic has turned his back on Tinsel Town to in a
bid to rescue his career at Manchester United.

The Swede was struck down by a knee injury near the end of a
promising debut season with United and then released by the
club.

Italian outlet Calciomercato say Ibrahimovic has turned
down a £6.5m ($11m) contract from LA Galaxy because he wants to
play for United again.

Ibra received some soothing words from United boss Jose
Mourinho.

Zlatan famously told Arsenal he didn’t do auditions when the
Gunners tried to have him trial when he was youngster.

He’s not ready to head to the land of the casting couch, with
LA Galaxy, despite the lure of being a headline act in MLS.

Mourinho seems open to the idea of Ibrahimovic returning in
January.

“Possible, it’s open, of course we wanted to be honest and open
and let everything for him to make the decision,” Mourinho
said.

“At the same time let’s make a decision that makes us all happy
and if that is for him to stay and for us to wait, let’s say in
December maybe, because I don’t think before December he can
get back to competitive football, but why not wait for a player
who gave us so much.

“We are changing ideas and it’s with Mr Woodward and Zlatan’s
agent but the final decision is the best for the player.”

United appear close to landing Inter Milan winger Ivan
Perisic
with reports suggesting Lazio star Keita Balde is
set to join the Nerazzurri.

The Red Devils have strongly pursued the Croatian international
but Inter have stood firm on their valuation at £50m.
Journalist Miguel Delaney of the Independent has been
leading on the story and believes the deal is close.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have their sights on out of favour
Argentine Sergio Aguero.

Spanish journalist Manu Sainz tweeted: “I’m told Chelsea want
to sign Kun Aguero. Guardiola has already give his OK to the
operation.”

Aguero has been linked with an Etihad exit after losing his
place under to Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus last season.

Guardiola’s side will have to make further reinforcements this
window after letting several defenders leave. Pablo Zabaleta,
Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna all departed the Etihad with only
Kyle Walker coming in so far.

The Times reports City are set to rival Chelsea for the
signature of Real Madrid’s Brazilian defender Danilo,
who is 26.

He is behind Dani Carvajal in the Real Madrid pecking order and
looking for more playing time.

Chelsea have offered Atletico Madrid star Yannick
Carrasco
a five-year contract, according to reports in
Spain.

They have missed out on No. 1 target Romelu Lukaku and are
struggling to lock in

Alvaro Morata.

Carrasco is reported to be “intrigued” by the prospect of
playing in the Premier League after joining Atleti from Monaco
in 2015.

He scored 14 goals across all competitions last season to be
the club’s third-highest scorer after Kevin Gameiro and Antoine
Griezmann.
