The former Manchester United footballer, who is currently without a club, features in 'Zlatan Legends' himself dressed in an Iron Man/ Transformer-type suit while in space.

In the trailer for the game, he is in character when he says: "I thought there were no challenges left. That's when they came. A new game, new rules and a new rival.

"Someone I know very well. On this day, the universe will know - there is only one Zlatan."

The camera then pans out to Zlatan's character who is seen with his arms outstretched before he folds them to create a letter Z.

'Zlatan Legends' is made by ISBIT GAMES - which is co-owned by the retired Swedish striker - and available from August 17 from Apple's App Store.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, the title has been in development for two years and is the first game released by ISBIT.

The title is described as a fast-paced action game set in space, but exact gameplay details are yet to be revealed.

United didn't extend Zlatan's one-year contract after he suffered a long-term knee injury.

But Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho recently admitted Ibrahimovic could be back in a Red Devils shirt this year.

He recently said: "It's possible. It's open. Of course, we wanted to be honest and open for him to make a decision in case his desire was to leave.

"There was not a new contract, but there was a space of time for everybody to think, feel and decide."
