Mourinho Ready to Agree Two-year Deal for Superstar – Do Man Utd Need Him?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in stunning form for Manchester United and the Red Devils are ready to persuade the 35-year-old to stay for TWO more years.
With 19 goals in all competitions already this term, the giant Swede has proven his worth again to Jose Mourinho.
So much so that not only will the Portuguese activate the club-option of a further year on the former-PSG star’s deal, but The Sun report they are desperate to keep him for at least one more year after that.
A belated entry to the Premier League perhaps, but should Ibrahimovic agree, it would see him compete in England for three years until he is 37 years of age.
Meanwhile the Reds teenage treasure, Marcus Rashford admitted that Zlatan is ‘invaluable’ to United, as youngsters are benefiting from playing with the striker.
‘For the young players to see his character and the way he approaches every game is invaluable. Some players can’t bring that when they move clubs,’ said Rashford.
‘We have to try to learn from him while he is here and take what we can from his game.’
The new two-year deal would take Ibrahimovic through to June 2019.
