Zlatan Ibrahimovic accepts his Manchester United career is over following news that he faces 12 months on the sidelines after suffering knee ligament damage, according to reports.
He is allegedly targeting a comeback in America once he has completed his rehabilitation, as he’s set to undergo a major surgery on Wednesday.
The big Swede is out of contract at the end of the season as he was stalling on a one-year extension, claiming that he would only sign once he was sure that he’d be able to perform at the best of his abilities.
With Ibrahimovic set to miss a large part of the upcoming season, his Old Trafford career remains uncertain even though he’s vowed to come back a stronger player.
It’s a massive blow for United as Ibrahimovic is United’s leading scorer with 28 goals across all competitions and has been a vital player this season.
Mourinho has been planning a massive overhaul in his attack this summer and has already been linked with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku, but if Zlatan is set to stay, it could be a reduced role before he takes his career elsewhere in the MLS.
