Why doesn't Jose Mourinho sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

Superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to leave England's record champions Manchester United this summer.

"We believe it will be Zlatan's last season at Manchester United," said team manager Jose Mourinho on Friday.

The now 36-year-old Swede Ibrahimovic was most recently courted by clubs from the North American professional league MLS.

Ibrahimovic has only played seven times for ManUnited in the current season, and the striker has not played since December due to a knee injury. After a cruciate ligament rupture in April 2017, he signed a new one-year contract in Manchester last summer.

Los Angeles lures Ibrahimovic

Most recently, the US broadcaster had ESPN reports that Los Angeles Galaxy has again put out feelers to Ibrahimovic. The five-time MLS champion may want to finance the professional with the help of external donors and sponsors.

Ibrahimovic was already in negotiations with the club last year, but then suffered a serious knee injury.

Ibrahimovic has not yet commented on this, but has expressed his willingness to make a comeback in the Swedish national team.

"I miss the national team. When you've played there for almost 20 years and then watch the others play while you're not there, it's hard," the 36-year-old Manchester United goalscorer told Swedish media.
