Almost ready to get back on the pitch at Manchester United, Swedish star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (36) talked to Sky Sports about his well-known rejection to Arsenal: “When my career was starting, Arsenal invited me to London, and I talked to Wenger: I thought they immediately wanted me, I was instead proposed a try-out.
