Zlatan Ibrahimovic to sign new Manchester United contract

The 35-year-old is recovering from the knee injury he suffered in April during a Europa League match against Anderlecht.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to put pen to paper on a new contract with Manchester United.

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 former Sweden worldwide, who has continued to use United's facilities during his recuperation, posted another reminder that he was on course for an earlier-than-expected return on his social media accounts on Sunday evening.

Manchester United will sign a player in late August after all, but the Red Devils are very much familiar with this one.

.

Sources told ESPN FC that the Swedish striker is expected to sign his new deal with the English squad "as early as this week".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Manchester United career appeared to be over.

While Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have impressed in the opening weeks of the season in support of Lukaku.

The pair worked together at Inter Milan before Ibrahimović joined United on a free from Paris Saint-Germain.

Mourinho is understood to have been hugely keen on re-signing the serial victor, whose influence in the dressing room was just as important as his goals last season, and it looks like the Portuguese coach could get his wish. Ibrahimovic was an absolute revelation last season and his winning mentality could prove to be pivotal to see Mourinho's men get over the line this season.
