Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is stronger now than ever and can play for “another five or six years”, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
The Swede re-signed for United on a one-year contract in the summer after his debut season in England, in which he scored 28 goals in 46 games, was cut short after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in April.
However, Raiola is starting to look beyond Ibrahimovic’s comeback this term and joked that he cannot let the former AC Milan and Barcelona forward stop playing.
“He has so much in him. I think minimum another five or six years,” Raiola told Expressen when asked how much longer Ibrahimovic can keep playing.
“I won’t let him stop, he needs to work now for me. I have been working for him for years now. Now it’s my turn. My children are grown up and I need money.
“We have agreed that for the next five years he is only working for me. So we’re flipping it now. The salary comes to me and he gets the commission.”
