Zlatan set to extend Man United stay
MANCHESTER, England (AP):
JosE Mourinho says he is convinced striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will extend his stay at Manchester United beyond this season.
The 35-year-old former Sweden international has enjoyed a fruitful first campaign in English football and has netted 20 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions.
Ibrahimovic joined United on a free transfer from French champions Paris St Germain, signing a one-year deal in July with the option of extending his contract for a second season.
"He came with intention of staying two years and the first year is going better than every expectation," United manager Mourinho said yesterday.
"He knows we are going to try again to improve next season and try to share with him in a fantastic way probably the last year of his career at the highest level."
