Manchester United are reportedly considering offering striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new deal with a view to a coaching role in the future.
The veteran was released by the Red Devils at the end of last season following a serious knee injury but has been using the club’s facilities as part of his recovery.
According to Miguel Delaney of The Independent, the prospect of a return has been discussed, as has a possible position on the staff.
“Club sources say [United manager Jose] Mourinho sees Ibrahimovic as a similar figure to Didier Drogba, who can offer the squad expertise and experience but also serve as a bridge between manager and players,” noted Delaney.
Delaney added that a potential role alongside Mourinho has “has already been broached in discussions” with the 35-year-old. The forward is said to be keen to carry on his playing career, too.
Ibrahimovic certainly shone on the field at Old Trafford in 2016-17, dispelling suggestions he wouldn’t thrive in English football with some wonderful displays.
