Jose Mourinho wants Zlatan Ibrahimovic to extend his contract at Manchester United – report

Manchester United want Zlatan Ibrahimovic to sign for another two years at Old Trafford, according to reports.

The big Swede has been remarkable since his arrival at the club where he signed a 12-month contract in the summer, with an option for a further season, and following his impressive start, both parties have already publicly spoken about extending his stay.

He’s already scored 19 goals this season and reports claim Jose Mourinho is keen on keeping him until the age of 37.

Ibrahimovic was allegedly reluctant to agree an extension when he went through a goal slump earlier in the campaign, scoring just once in 11 appearances, but with 13 goals in just as many games, Zlatan has got back to what he does best.

It’s not just about what Ibrahimovic provides on the pitch, but it’s about the inspiration off the field, with youngsters at the club looking up to him as a mentor.

Marcus Rashford has plenty of talent but is too inexperienced to take the full-time starting role at this point in his career, and learning from one of the best in the world will only excel his development further.

There are exciting times ahead for United and with Ibrahimovic leading the line United have nothing to worry about.
