Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reject the riches of the Chinese Super League and spend another season with Manchester United, believes his agent Mino Raiola.
Ibrahimovic has impressed in the Premier League since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, scoring 16 goals in 25 games for Jose Mourinho’s side.
The 35-year-old has reportedly been offered a £120m deal to join the Chinese football revolution, but Raiola has backed the Swede to remain in the UK.
“There is a big chance that there will be a second year,” Raiola told Sky Sports News HQ presenter Jim White on talkSPORT. “We had already included that in the contract so it is not new for us and Manchester United.
Both parties are very happy with that. “It is more a question of time or when rather than if.” When pushed on claims about interest from China, Raiola added: “That was also last year and he chose not to take it to come to England and that showed his spirit.
“The boy is not done yet. He still has it in him. He still has the fire that he wants to win, that he wants to perform, and if it was only money he was after, he would not be at Manchester United.”
Mourinho said himself in November that United will take up the option to extend the Swede’s contract for another year, though no official announcement has been made.
The manager said: “We are happy with him. We are going to execute the option of a second season. After that he can do what he wants.”
