The 35-year-old is currently debating on whether to sign a further 12-month contract for next season, as he insisted that he wants to ensure that he can perform to the best of his abilities before signing another deal.
He has been heavily linked with a move to the MLS to become LA Galaxy’s highest-paid earner, but Mourinho has already previously discussed his intent to keep the big Swede at Old Trafford following his impressive start.
Speaking about his future, Mourinho claims he’s just waiting for Ibrahimovic’s decision.
“I am just calm and waiting for the decision,” he said.
“If the decision is for him to stay and he is happy with that, we are delighted with that. If his decision is to leave and try to find a different challenge, I will be also happy for him.
“He is [a big part of our success this season] but the human being is more important than the player and the team. If his decision is to leave and try to be happy with his family and have a different reality, so be it.”
Ibrahimovic has confirmed he’s still not made up his decision on his future but insisted that talks are being held as he never leaves a job unfinished.
He’s silenced critics who thought he wouldn’t be able to cope with the intensity of football in England with 26 goals across all competitions and hopes are he stays for another year as he’s already showcased he can perform better than most.
