Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s family is set to move out of their home in England, thereby signalling an end to the player’s Manchester United career.
The Swede superstar made a free transfer to Manchester United in the summer of 2016, and has since proved his worth on the English soil, after having bagged 17 goals in the Premier League, and helping his side win the Community Shield as well as the EFL Cup.
However, the 35-year-old suffered a serious injury during United’s Europa League quarter-final clash against Anderlecht, which ruled him out for the entire 2017, and put his career with the Red Devils under major doubt.
It remains unsure as to whether the decorated striker will wear the famous red shirt ever again, but if his family’s latest actions are any indications, it looks like his Manchester United career is all but over.
According to Sunday People Sport (via Mirror), Zlatan’s family is all set to move out of their luxury property in the Cheshire footballer’s enclave of Hale next month itself, despite the house being rented until the start of next season.
In fact, the forward’s family members were already seen bidding their farewells to all the friends they have made in the area since moving there seven months ago.
To further support the indication that Ibrahimovic has already decided to leave the Old Trafford outfit, reports from Sweden claim that Zlatan will return to his homeland to continue his rehabilitation process under Malmo-based Physiotherapist Richard Dahan, instead of utilising the medical services offered by Manchester United.
Dahan currently works with the Swedish national team, and has a private practice of his own. He first began working with Ibrahimovic since the striker’s early footballing days with Malmo, and their professional as well as personal relationship strengthened when Zlatan broke into the national team setup.
A Swedish source reportedly stated: “Working with Richard Dahan will appeal to Zlatan on many levels, not least because he trusts him greatly and they go back a long way. Dahan knows Zlatan’s injury history and he knows how he ticks. In terms of Zlatan and his body, no-one knows him better than Dahan.”
