First, they talked that he was old and could not be in England, so he scored 28 goals in the season. He then seriously injured his knee and lost a renewal of his contract at Manchester United, but he marvelously recovered and could get a new chance at Old Trafford.
We’re of course talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the story of him staying at Old Trafford is being covered by almost all of the English media.
United manager Jose Mourinho allegedly attended the club’s physicians and was impressed by Zlatan’s rapid recovery (according to the first prognoses he had to pause until 2018) and decided to offer him a one-year extension.
On the list of United wishes, Ivan Perisic is still at the top, and now the possibility of Zlatan and Ivan playing together next season is not so unrealistic anymore.
United does not want to give up on Perisic just yet, and as evidence, it is reported that the executive vice president, Edward Woodward did not go in the US as he did in the past years, but has remained in Europe to finalize Perisic’s transfer.
Mourinho and his team have their first match on Saturday against LA Galaxy, when the “Red Devils” should debut with two big reinforcements worth a total of 125 million euros – Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku.
