Contract report – Old Trafford may not have seen the last of Zlatan Ibrahimovic

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic’s inclusion on Manchester United’s list of released players seemed to suggest his career at Old Trafford was over – but that might not be the case.While the Swede will become a free agent on July 1, he is going to continue his recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury at the club’s Carrington training ground.And the Manchester Evening News report that, should his recovery be a success, he could be offered a short-term deal until the end of the 2017/18 season.It’s likely that January 2018 will be the earliest possible date for his return to action.The 35-year-old finished last term as United’s top scorer with 28 goals in all competitions, and may have been challenging for the Premier League’s Golden Boot before injury cruelly ended his campaign in April.
