Manchester United "unlikely" to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic another contract

Manchester United

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not expected to be offered a new contract at Old Trafford according to sources, ESPN reports.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a stellar season for the Red Devils this past year and the Swede proved why he is one of the best players in the world.

The 35-year-old has said he wants to stay despite having "lots of offers" from other clubs, but is not expected to be retained by United.

Press Association Sport understands that those behind the scenes at Old Trafford have been impressed by Ibrahimovic's recovery, yet there remains understandable questions as to how he will be when returning to the first-team.

The Sweden star enjoyed a brilliant first season in the Premier League, scoring 28 goals in all competitions before a serious knee injury ended his campaign early during United's Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo at the start of May.

That has caused United to alter their summer transfer intentions and focus their search on a central striking option as opposed to a No10, which saw the club drop their interest in Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann last month.

Mourinho has made no secret of his admiration for Javier Hernandez in recent months, saying he would not have sold the striker to Bayer Leverkusen before underlining how a player like him was missing at United.
