Man United star to get surprise new contract

Manchester United have been so impressed with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s introduction to English football that they are already set to offer the Swede a new contract, according to The Mirror.

The Scandinavian hitman left Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer earlier in the summer and signed for the Old Trafford club in a 12-month deal.

Since being reunited with Jose Mourinho at the Red Devils, Ibrahimovic has proven himself as able to consistently score.

After a goal against Leicester in the Community Shield, the veteran has been on the mark in the Premier League against Bournemouth, Southampton and again yesterday in the Manchester derby against City.

With the threat that Ibrahimovic’s stay at United could only be for a solitary season, the report suggests that the power brokers at Old Trafford are preparing a new three-year deal for the Swedish striker.

The powerful centre-forward has been a success wherever he has played and will hope to help United to the Premier League title this season.
