Mourinho confirms United will take up option of second year in Ibrahimovic’s contract

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will remain at Manchester United beyond this season.

The Swedish striker moved to Old Trafford last summer as a free agent and signed a one-year deal, with the
option for a further one year.
This week, Ibrahimovic talked up a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) .

“It’s a huge option for me. For the football and everything else. I can see myself conquering the US as I have with Europe,” he told daily newspaper Aftonbladet.

“Lots of people stay in one place throughout their career, but I’ve travelled around like Napoleon, and conquered every new country where I’ve set foot.
“So perhaps I should do what Napoleon didn’t and cross the Atlantic and conquer the States as well.”

But in his press conference ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Feyernoord, Mourinho says that clause will be activated and the 35-year-old will be at United for the 2017/2018 season.
“Zlatan’s situation is simple,” Mourinho said.
“He has one plus one. We are happy with him. We are going to execute the option of a second season. After that he can do what he wants.”
