Ibrahimovic could stay at Manchester United — Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been urged not to rush his comeback

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been urged not to rush his comeback

Ibrahimovic was soon released by the Red Devils at the end of the season, but United offered a generous gesture by providing him complete access to the club's training facilities.

My work last season to face teams in the Europa League with commitment was hard, this season it is not hard to motivate for playing Real Madrid, Barcelona, the top English teams, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

"So we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him staying with us for the second part of the season".

"He wants more at football's highest level", said Mourinho.

Zlatan's United career was ended prematurely with the striker suffering knee damage versus Anderlecht in April - resulting in surgery and a lengthy spell on the sidelines for the Swedish forward. "He is not ready to play tomorrow". It's not something that's urgent, it's not desperate to have it done or not. "I think in the Premier League it's much faster, much more physical so when we get him, generally, he's in good condition".

Michael Carrick believes "things are on the up" at Manchester United ahead of the club's opening game of the season against West Ham.

United have spent heavily this summer, signing Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic for a combined fee of over £150m, as they look to challenge both domestically and in the Champions League.

"The Premier League is what you all know", he said.

"He's injured, he needs time to recover. I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or saying I am not happy".

He added: "If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive by 31 August, I will not moan". Can he still contribute to the team after his serious injury?
