Jose Mourinho hints Ibrahimovic deal ‘is closer’

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says the door is ajar to Zlatan Ibrahimovic re-signing.

United declined to extend Ibrahimovic’s one-year contract this summer after he suffered a season-ending injury in April.

The Swede has remained in Manchester to work on his rehabilitation, with an aim to be fit again by January.

“Maybe he’ll stay with us,” Mourinho said yesterday.

“He has no contract but he is closer to Manchester.”
