Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not stay with Manchester United next season, confirms Jose Mourinho


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic might leave Manchester United at the end of the current season. Ibrahimovic last featured for the club in a 2-2 draw against Burnley in December after making a successful comeback from injury. He will be running out of contract at Old Trafford this season after extending his stay at the club last year. He has embraced a sluggish second season in the English Premier League and has failed to his top form after suffering horrific injuries.

The 36-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the MLS and it looks like a move to America is on the table for Manchester United’s top scorer last season. LA Galaxy has surfaced as the potential destination for Ibrahimovic, who is yet to score a goal for United in the Premier League this season. He had recovered from a career-threatening cruciate knee ligament injury during Europa League clash against Anderlecht in the Europa League. Zlatan scored 29 goals across competitions for United last season.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insisted that Ibrahimovic had the right to decide his own future and is decision will be respected by the club. Zlatan last scored for the Red Devils, in United’s shocking defeat against Bristol City in the League Cup. The Swede might return to the starting XI in United’s second leg Champions League fixture against Sevilla but will not remain with the club for long.
