Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Rumors suggest a strange arrangement between the club and the player as he fights for his recovery

News broke today of a possible agreement between Manchester United and departing star Zlatan Ibrahimovic for him to stay at the club’s training center at Carrington and continue rehabilitation process from the horrific injury he sustained in April.

The player has reportedly agreed to stay with the club until January of 2018 as a non-player when his fitness would be assessed and then could be offered a six-month deal by Manchester United and end the 2017/18 campaign with them.

This of course makes sense as both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester United were eager to extend their collaboration for a further year, but the ACL Knee Ligament Injury in the quarter – finals in the Europa League has forced the club to change their plans.

Alvaro Morata is rumored to be close to signing for United after the end of the international break, but a need for another striker in Jose Mourinho’s roster is evident. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have understandably not delivered to the desirable level as they’ve both appeared to be more comfortable on the left flank or as second strikers.
