Manchester United coach, José Mourinho has confirmed the English club is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over a new deal.
The Red Devils coach has confirmed United are in talks with Ibrahimovic about signing a new deal once he is fully fit.
The Portuguese told a news conference on Friday: “You know he’s injured, he needs time to recover, he’s not ready to play tomorrow.
“It’s not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did last year was not enough for him, he thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season.” He added.
The striker was released in the summer after a knee ligament prematurely ended his first season at Old Trafford. Despite not having a contract, the 35-year-old is using the club’s facilities during his rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, New £75 million striker Romelu Lukaku has taken the Swede’s No. 9 shirt.
