Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been included in the Swedish provisional squad for the 2016 Olympic games, which could delay his Man United debut.
The 34-year-old who is currently on duty at the European Championships in France, will reportedly join Manchester United after the tournament - with a medical already scheduled.

However, it's unlikely both Jose Mourinho and Manchester United would be too happy with the possibility that the Swedish golden-boy could play at the Olympic games in Rio this summer.
The Olympic football tournament is meant for players under the age of 23, but the rules allow for 3 players over the age of 23. With the Olympic Games taking place between August 3-20, Ibrahimovic would miss both United's pre-season fixtures, and the opening games of the Premier League.
Sweden's victory at the U21 European championship games last Summer handed them an invitation to compete at the Olympic games, where they have been drawn against Japan, Nigeria and Colombia in the group stages of the tournament.
Coach Haka Eriksson will name his final squad in mid-July, but you can say with conviction that Manchester United would not be happy if the Swede opted to compete at the Rio Olympics.
But as everybody knows, Zlatan does what Zlatan wants.
