Footall - Ibrahi­movic se­cures an­other sea­son at United... if he wants

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Manch­ester United wants to keep Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic for an­other sea­son. United man­ager Jose Mour­inho an­nounced yes­ter­day that the club wants to take up the op­tion to ex­tend the Swedish for­ward's con­tract through 2018. "I feel fresh, I feel in shape and phys­i­cally if I feel like now, prob­a­bly it will be a se­cond year," Ibrahi­movic said. "I want to be re­al­is­tic with my­self. I want to be able to per­form like I can do and not waste time. Now it is prob­a­bly a yes (to an­other sea­son), but I need dis­cus­sions." The 35-year-old Ibrahi­movic joined United on a free trans­fer in July af­ter leav­ing Paris Sain­tGer­main. Ibrahi­movic opened his United ca­reer with four goals in four Premier League games but he has only scored three times in 12 games in all com­pe­ti­tions since then. "He is happy, com­mit­ted and lov­ing his life as a foot­ball player at Man United," Mour­inho said. "This is prob­a­bly the last big chal­lenge of his foot­ball ca­reer, so it is per­fect for him to be here for the next 18 months and then he owns the de­ci­sion of his fu­ture."
