Nemanja Vidic has dropped a big hint that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will extend his stay at Manchester United for another season.

The Swedish striker has been the Red Devils’ star player this season and has already scored 28 goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men despite being in the twilight years of his career.

Indeed, Manchester United have struggled to produce consistent form in front of goal this season whenever Ibrahimovic has been absent.

Ibrahimovic joined the Red Devils from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer and initially signed a one-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.

It remains to be seen whether the forward will extend his stay at the club beyond the summer and the player himself is yet to make an official announcement about his future.

However, former Manchester United defender Vidic appears to have hinted that he is fully expecting Ibrahimovic to stay on at Old Trafford beyond the summer.

Vidic told MUTV: “I admire his presence. He is good with the ball and he is good in the build ups and of course when he is in the box he is a threat.

“To be fair he was never counting on speed as a player and that is a positive sign that he can do well again next year.”
