Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already started planning ahead for the day he finally hangs up his boots.
According to reports, Ibrahimovic has planned to start taking his coaching badges from the new year, and continue the course in the summer.
He will look to seek advice from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in the coming weeks, and gain some invaluable tips from the Portuguese manager.
For now, though, the Swedish striker is focusing on his playing career, and plans to carry on for another two years.
A Manchester United source said: “Zlatan is already tapping into Jose Mourinho and planning for the future in the game.
“He has told the lads he does not see an end to his playing days for another two or three years.
“Jose has left his door open and Ibra likes the idea of coaching, but not necessarily a manager right away.
“He is enjoying picking up a few ideas and he fancies Italy.
“Ibra will take a badge when things settle down for him early in New Year and then progress it next summer.”
Ibrahimovic has got life in Manchester off to the perfect start, with four goals in as many games, including the winner in the FA Community Shield game against Leicester City.
