Mino Raiola: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a lot of offers to leave Manchester United

Mino Raiola has confirmed Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to stay at Manchester United even though there are lots of offers on the table.

He has been heavily linked with an Old Trafford exit as he’s yet to sign a new deal after picking up a serious knee injury.

The big Swede scored 28 goals across all competitions since arriving last summer, proving his doubters wrong and performing in England, however, there are fears he won’t be able to come back next campaign.

Speaking on the Jim White show on Wednesday, Raiola claimed Zlatan is still in high demand despite his recent injury.

Asked directly if the 35-year-old wants to remain at United, Raiola said: “Oh, yes. He wants to stay in England he wants to stay at the top and if he sees that he can be a valuable asset for Manchester United, then why not Manchester United?

“He can be a valuable asset for some other top clubs also. [But] I think it is respectful to talk to Manchester United and see what all parties want.”

He’s not expected to return to action until 2018 and will miss the start of next season as he looks to continue his rehabilitation at Old Trafford.

There aren’t many players that can fight back from a career-ending injury at the age of 35, but Zlatan is different and it remains to be seen if he’ll be able to get back to his best form.
