Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s super-agent Mino Raiola has revealed his client’s future plans, and Manchester United fans might have a reason to be happy.

Since moving to Manchester for free last summer, the Swede has been in impeccable form, scoring 26 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils, and till date stands as the top goal scorer for the club in the 2016-17 season.

However, he picked up a knee injury just a month before the season’s conclusion, and has been sidelined until the end of the year. The decorated striker went to the United States to get a surgery done on his knee, and though it is understood that it was a success, Zlatan is not expected to play football at least until the start of 2018.

He is out of a contract at Old Trafford at the end of the month, though, and with his future uncertain, he is not expected to be offered a new deal before the start of the season.

This has seen a number of rumours going around, claiming that Zlatan is looking at a move to the MLS, but Mino Raiola, the attacker’s agent, has now revealed that he will not be moving to the United States.

Speaking to the Sky network, Raiola revealed that he does not know if Ibrahimovic has a future at Old Trafford, but will be discussing his future very soon. But more interestingly, he revealed that a number of European clubs are looking for the veteran’s signature, and that he is not yet ready to move to a less intense league just yet.

Here are the tweets:

At 36, he may not be in his prime, but Raiola feels Zlatan has enough football left in him to sparkle for another couple of years. But does he?
