Jose Mourinho believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic will leave the club in the summer.
The Swede has struggled for fitness since his return from his knee ligament injury, his last match coming on boxing day.
And Mourinho who managed Ibrahimovic at Inter is unhappy is time at Old Trafford was marred by injuries.
“We all think it’s his last season at Manchester United and it will be a very personal decision for him to play or to stop,” said Mourinho.
“I think he wants the right of choosing his life, his future, such an amazing player and amazing career. [It’s a shame] that only that awful injury in the wrong moment broke a fantastic couple of seasons he could, and should, have had with us. This season is really different for him.
“He’s not injured. Does he feel totally happy, ready and convinced that he’s in condition to help the team in this moment? No. But he’s such an honest guy and such a champion, he only wants to be back with that feeling of ‘I’m totally ready for it’.
“So he’s working hard and hopefully his evolution brings him to that level. He wants to have a positive answer.”
