Zlatan Ibrahimovic happy at United but refuses to commit future
Manchester United and Swedish hero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stated that although he is happy with things in Manchester, he has not decided yet where he will be playing next season. The iconic striker joined Manchester United on free from Paris Saint-Germain last summer on a one year contract with an option to extend for another year, which he is yet to exercise. Ibrahimovic has been a revelation for the English club so far, having scored 26 goals across all competitions and also helping the Red Devils lift the League Cup in February.
Interest in the Swede has peaked in recent weeks with the likes of MLS outfit, LA Galaxy wanting to sign the striker in the coming summer, according to sources from ESPN. But Ibrahimovic recently had an interview with his former coach at Juventus Fabio Capello, with Fox Sports where he suggested that no decision has yet been taken by him or his agent Mino Raiola regarding his contract with Manchester United. When asked about the links with Italian club Napoli, he said.
"You never know, but I'm happy here. Let's just wait and see what happens."
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola had previously stated that the Manchester United forward had "always been in love with the city of Naples," although a move to Napoli is unlikely for as long as Maurizio Sarri is their coach.
Ibrahimovic dwelled on his time in Italy with the Milan clubs and stated that he considered the time spent in Italy with high regard.
“My family was very happy in Milan. They had convinced me to join them with great desire and motivation. We had a great side. When we won the title, I remember Galliani coming into the dressing room with an Inter shirt in his hands and he ripped off the badge for the titleholders and told us: 'This is yours now.' When you're happy, you're just happy. I just wanted to be playing and I still had in my mind what had happened at Barcelona, where I hadn't been comfortable."
Jose Mourinho has already suggested United fans that may have to camp outside Ibrahimovic’s house to convince him to stay at Old Trafford. The fans would certainly be hoping that the Swede signs a new contract and continue to mesmerize them and even his lingering critics for more years to come in England.
