Zlatan in line for United deal after 'amazing' recovery

Zlatan in line for United deal after 'amazing' recovery

The Old Trafford chief was uncomfortable with only some members of the Manchester United squad being emblazoned for publicity purposes, wanting to ensure there is no perceived pecking order in his ranks, ahead of the new season.

The Red Devils are also reported to be circling Chelsea's Nemanja Matic and Tottenham's Eric Dier as they aim to recruit a top-class defensive midfielder. "Everything is so hard".

Romalu Lukaku may have arrived in a £75m deal from Everton this summer, but it is clear that Mourinho has not closed the book on Ibrahimovic's United story just yet.

Mourinho said: "First of all I think after the champion, Chelsea, I think Manchester United is the second club that we can say most successful last season and Arsenal the third".

"We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well".

"They have signed a player with vast potential but he has a lot to prove", Neville said.

United have not ruled out signing Sweden worldwide Ibrahimovic on a short-term contract once he is fit.

Ibrahimovic appeared to have kicked his last ball for United after he picked up a serious knee injury in April, which forced the club to withdraw the offer of a fresh contract that had been on the table since last December.

But both Los Angeles-based Major League Soccer clubs - LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC - are interested in signing him if he decides to end his career elsewhere.

"He did not want that, he was not happy with his finish (to the season) and not playing". He is open. We wanted to be honest and open and give everything for him to make a decision, in case his desire was to leave.

"He didn't want to hide behind an wonderful injury".

However, Ibrahimovic is being aggressively pursued by LA Galaxy, who wanted him when he left PSG a year ago, and are prepared to make him the highest paid player in the MLS.

"We opened the door for him tor recover with our people and be one of us".
