Jose Mourinho confirms Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in talks about signing a new contract at Manchester United

Ibrahimovic hoping to return from serious knee injury in October and Mourinho wants to bring the striker back into his squad at Old Trafford

SunSport revealed last month how United had begun negotiations with the Swedish striker over returning to Old Trafford once he recovers from a serious knee injury.

And Mourinho has today confirmed he is trying to agree a deal which will see the 35-year-old link up with the squad for the majority of this season.

Mourinho said: “We are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us.

“It was very clear from him that what he did last year was not enough for him.

“He wants more football at the highest level so we are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season.

“He is injured, he needs time to recover, and is not ready to play tomorrow. It’s not something that’s urgent, it’s not desperate to have it done or not.”
