Man Utd boss Mourinho ponders omitting Ibrahimovic for China

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may not include Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his China tour squad.

The Guardian says United jet off to the Far East on Tuesday for friendlies against Borussia Dortmund on July 23 and Manchester City three days later.

But the former Sweden international may not travel as Mourinho wants to give him extra time to recover from Euro 2016.

Ibrahimovic, who is on holiday in America, is available to play, but Mourinho is understood to be willing to let him rest further so that he is ready for the start of the Premier League season.

If the 34-year-old doesn’t play, he will likely make his friendly debut against Galatasaray on July 30 or Everton on August 3 in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial.
