Zlatan Ibrahimovic is said to be stalling over committing his future to Manchester United, according to reports.
The big Swede signed a one-year deal at Old Trafford in the summer transfer window, but Jose Mourinho has already publicly spoken about extending his stay following a brilliant start to the season in England.
There were concerns he wouldn’t be able to cope with the intensity of the Premier League, but he’s already scored 24 goals across all competitions and has shown United have a brilliant deal on their hands as they acquired his services in a free transfer.
Reports claim the 35-year-old wants to play in the Champions League, and is stalling due to concerns with Man United’s qualification hopes.
He turns 36 in October and his performances have proven he still has it in the locker, reinforcing the fact that he’s aged like a fine wine and improving his goalscoring record.
Man United currently sit sixth in the Premier League, but are within touching distance of the top four, and if Mourinho wants to keep Ibrahimovic at the club, a striker with 24 goals in 36 appearances, a win in Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Southampton, will be a step in the right direction.
