This season is likely to be Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s last in the colours of Manchester United.
Most football fans assumed that his career was over when he suffered a season-ending ACL injury against Anderlecht back in April but the iconic Swede has bounced back stronger than ever, recording a cameo outing in United’s 4-1 win over Newcastle in November.
Even before the new Premier League season began, many people tipped the title would end up back in Manchester.
Well, well, well. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is to return to Old Trafford by the end of this year.
Reports emerging on Sunday suggest that Manchester United have withdrawn the offer of a one-year extension on the contract of Zlatan Ibrahimovic while they await a confirmed prognosis on the injury he suffered against Anderlecht.
Manchester United have endured an underwhelming start to the campaign under new manager Jose Mourinho, leaving them well off the early pace setters in the race of the Premier League title.
Unsurprisingly, most of the pre-match attention has centred on the two new bosses, the football match a mere side show as two managerial megastars resume their decade long rivalry.
