Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reportedly set to stay at Manchester United.

The Swede’s future has been up in the air after he refused to confirm he will sign a contract extension at Old Trafford.

Ibrahimovic only agreed on a one-year deal when he arrived at United, and with his contract running down, he was linked with a sensational move to LA Galaxy while a return to Italy was also speculated.

Now, Tuttomercatoweb claim the 35-year-old striker will be staying put, although last week Mourinho said he had “no news” on the situation. The Italian outlet say Ibrahimovic will sign a new deal for at least another year, in the next fortnight, with the option for another season after that.

The news comes as a huge boost for Jose Mourinho, amid fears the talismanic striker could leave after just one season.

But it is believed his determination to win the Premier League has swung his decision. The striker is desperate to add the title to an incredible trophy haul and thinks United will be right in the mix next season.

Even Ibrahimovic himself hinted that he wants to stay at Manchester United in a recent interview, “I never leave a job unfinished.

“I’m a person when I go into something I put my head 200 percent, and I do what I’m good at. I go in, I go for the kill and I go out.

“And when I go out there is no complaints, that’s what I do.

“I always go in, do my job, and in the way that is a fair play, a fair deal, that is what I do.”
