Lukaku joins Ibrahimovic in exclusive Manchester United club after goal against Swansea

Manchester United is expected to offer a new contract to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed off his martial arts skills on Sunday as he demonstrated his return to fitness.

The Independent has reported that the Red Devils are looking to offer Zlatan Ibrahimović a new contract.

Old Trafford chiefs believe Ibrahimovic will sign the fresh deal this week, according to ESPN.

Meanwhile, United manager Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to keep his star striker once he returns from injury, but there has been growing speculations at the other end that Ibrahimovic would seek a new club once he returns to action in the month of January.

The 35-year-old, who damaged knee ligaments back in April, scored 28 goals for United during a fine debut season before it was prematurely cut short following a bad injury sustained against Anderlecht in the Europa League.

"We are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us", he said.

"I just think he was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him".

Despite the outstanding start to Romelu Lukaku's Man Utd career, as well as the exciting form of both Marcus Rasford and Anthony Martial, Jose Mourinho could be set to bolster his attacking options for the second half of the season (possibly sooner) by once again securing the services the one and only Zlatan Ibrahimovic. "He's not ready to play tomorrow, he's not something urgent, he's not something you are desperate to have it done, or not done".

Mourinho confirmed the club are in talks with Ibrahimovic, after the forward was United's top scorer last season with 17 Premier League goals.

Manchester United have also signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.
