Manchester United set to confirm Zlatan Ibrahimovic's exit from Old Trafford

Manchester United set to confirm Zlatan Ibrahimovic's exit from Old Trafford

The Manchester United-Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears to be reaching an end with the Old Trafford outfit reluctant to extend his stay beyond the end of the month. That would have been triggered in any case had Ibrahimovic started 31 Premier League games for United.

A source says the 35-year-old is expected to appear on a list of released players from the Premier League.

That competition looks increasingly likely to have witnessed his last appearance for United, having sustained serious knee ligament damage in April's quarter-final second leg against Anderlecht.

The retained list is produced by every club and shows which players are being let go at the end of their current contracts on June 30.




Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata is just one of the names mentioned to relpace Ibrahimovic in the summer, after United cooled their interest in Atletico Madrid's Antione Griezmann.

Although there is no rule restricting a club from approaching a player excluded from their retained list at a later point regarding a new deal, the list will include details of any offers already made.

"He's had a fantastic time at United and it's now up to us and the club to decide".
