Man Utd close to signing Ibrahimovic replacement

Manchester United have identified Andrea Belotti as Zlatan Ibrahimovic's successor, according reports. Ibrahimovic is out of contract at the end of the season with Jose Mourinho already planning for life after the charismatic Swedish striker.

The 36-year-old is sidelined with a knee injury and is expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of his deal.

United have reportedly signalled their intention to sign a 'centre forward in his mid-20s' as a replacement.

And according to Yahoo Sport the player 'top of a list drawn up by United scouts' is Torino striker Belotti.

Despite a slow start to Serie A this season, the Reds were said to be impressed by his 26-goal haul last season and his experience with the Italian national side makes him a credible option.

However, a deal for the 24-year-old wouldn't come cheap - the Italian forward is rumoured to have a €100million release clause in his current deal.
