He said "If that is true and Zlatan wants a future in another club in another country we are here to help and to create conditions for that to happen, not to make his life hard".

Ibrahimovic has made just seven appearances for United this season, scoring once, and has not featured since Boxing Day after aggravating the knee ligament injury he suffered in the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht last season.

"One deal that may happen today is Daley Blind joining Roma - there have been talks between the two clubs and the player is now peripheral at Old Trafford, so Jose Mourinho would be happy to let him go". A separate knock picked up against Burnley in December has kept the 36-year-old out of action as of late.

"If that is true and Zlatan wants a future in another club in another country we are here to help and to create conditions for that to happen, not to make his life hard". "He's never, ever excluded Italy - maybe I have excluded it for him in the past". The new MLS season will kicks off in March, whereas the current contract between Man United and Ibrahimović runs until June.

Jose Mourinho says he made a decision to extend his stay at Manchester United because he is convinced the club's board can match his ambition.

McIlroy finished the 2017 season early after an injury-plagued year and he's now finished second and third since his return. His runner-up finish in Dubai - his sixth top-10 in 11 appearances - came one week after a tied-third in Abu Dhabi .

According to ESPN's Jeff Carlisle, the Los Angeles Galaxy are closing in on a deal to sign the Swedish goal-scoring machine after his contract expires in the summer.

"There is a desire from myself, the board and the player to stay together".

"The club wants the same as I want", he said. The club have the same ambition that I have. "We will not make his life hard".

"We know stability is very important and we chose to sign a contract with this in mind".
