Jose Mourinho has confirmed Manchester United will take up the option to extend Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract for another season.
“Zlatan’s situation is simple,” said Mourinho ahead of United’s Europa League meeting with Feyenoord.
“He has one plus one. We are happy with him. We are going to execute the option of a second season. After that he can do what he wants.”,
Zlatan Ibrahimovic said: “For the moment we haven’t had any discussions. I have a contract that says one plus one so I feel good, I feel fresh, I feel in shape and physically if I feel like now, probably it will be a second year.
“I want to be realistic with myself and if I’m here I want to be able to perform like I can do and not waste time. But like it is now, probably yes, but I need discussions we haven’t had.
“The second year goes automatic after one – so that is no word from me or no word from them. It goes automatic after certain things so if it continues like this, yes.”
Ibrahimovic has scored eight goals in 17 appearances for United so far this season.
