Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been Manchester United’s leading man this season and, having arrived on a free-transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, the Swedish veteran is keen to extend his stay at Old Trafford by another two-years.
Ibrahimovic is set to have a one-year extension on his current £300k-a-week deal with the Red Devils activated but his advisors are pushing for a new deal completely, as they look to keep the well-travelled striker at the club until 2019.
Having scored 26 goals this season across all competitions, Ibrahimovic leads United’s scoring charts by quite a way and his performances have put him in a good position to negotiate an extended stint in the North West of England.
Manchester United certainly have a decision to make though as whilst Ibrahimovic may be the key-man this season, that could all change in the summer if the Red Devils secure their top-target Antoine Griezmann.
Should the Frenchman arrive, he’d join an already bolstering Manchester United attack that includes young starlets Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial- and an extended stay for Ibrahimovic could limit the opportunities that come their way.
Ibrahimovic has offers from across the world, including from the MLS and China, but staying in the Premier League seems to be his preference.
