Mourinho speaks with Ibrahimovic about a new contract


Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho admits they speaking with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about a new contract.

The 54-year-old specialist, speaking ahead of their Premier League opener with West Ham, confirmed the former Sweden international is eager to play again in Europe once he’s recovered from knee surgery.

“You know he’s injured, he needs time to recover, he’s not ready to play tomorrow,” said Mourinho.

“It’s not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did last year was not enough for him.

“He thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season.”
