Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits Manchester United future could be close to over

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he’s unsure about how long he will continue to play as a professional footballer.

The 35-year-old has silenced critics since his move to Old Trafford as many believed he wouldn’t be able to deal with the intensity of football in England during the latter stages of his career.

He’s scored 28 goals in all competitions and has been a vital player in Mourinho’s squad not only as the club’s top goal scorer but as a leader to the players around him.

Speaking about his future, Ibrahimovic insists he’s not sure how long is left until he retires.

“I will not lie, the season has been great,” he said.

“But I’m always comparing my seasons to the seasons I’ve been doing, my last season was amazing.

“I’m happy I chose this club because I think this club is the biggest in Manchester, in England and one of the biggest in the world.

“I have nothing else to prove, everything has been said. I want to collect as many trophies as possible and enjoy.

“I don’t know how long I have left. Rashford, Lingard have long careers in front of them.

“I was there 15 years ago, I don’t know how long I have left.”

He’s previously stated the reason why he hasn’t extended his stay at Old Trafford is because wants to ensure that he can perform to the best of his abilities next year.

Jose Mourinho will be doing all that he can to ensure Zlatan stays at United following his impressive debut season as he’s proven he’s more than capable of leading the side forward.
