Mourinho confirms Man Utd will complete £19m deal for Superstar

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that it is "possible" for striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to stay at Old Trafford. The former Swedish international joined the Red Devils from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer. He suffered a serious knee injury in the Europa League clash against Anderlecht in April, for which he had to go under the knife, reports IBT Times.

    Mourinho says United "want" Ibrahimovic, but it is down to the player to make a decision on his future.

"It's possible, it's open. Of course," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Mirror, when asked if United could re-sign Ibrahimovic.

"We want him to be honest and open and let everything be there for him to make a decision in case his desire was to leave, so there was not a new contract.

"There was a space and time for everyone to think, to feel, to decide and, from his point of view, he made the decision to still want to play football at the highest level.

"It would be easy for him to hide behind such an amazing injury and say it's time to play at a different level. But he made the challenge for him to continue at the highest level. We opened our door for him to recover with us and then to make a decision."
