Report: Manchester United likely won't offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic new contract
Thursday June 8th, 2017

Manchester United has released striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic from his contract. 

Ibrahimovic, 35, signed a one-year deal with the club last summer, and his current contract will expire on June 30. The Swede sustained a serious knee ligament injury in April that will reportedly keep him out until January 2018. 

ESPN FC reported the club doesn't feel Ibrahimovic is worth a £300,000-a-week contract considering his injury status. 

Ibrahimovic scored a team-best 28 goals in 46 games for Manchester United in his only season with the club. Despite Jose Mourinho's side finishing sixth in the Premier League, the team qualified for the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League by winning the Europa League. 

It's unclear where Ibrahimovic will land, though he has previously been linked with a move to Major League Soccer. Ibrahimovic signed with United last year after four seasons with PSG.
