Manchester United could be set to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract when he returns from injury, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is claiming that the 35-year-old striker could be set to give Manchester United the first option to sign him once again when he recovers from his serious knee problem.

Ibrahimovic is currently undergoing his rehabilitation at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground after he suffered a serious knee injury towards the end of last season.

The Red Devils initially chose not to renew the striker’s contract after it expired at the end of last season.

However, it is now being suggested that they could still try and keep him at Old Trafford beyond the summer by getting him to sign a new deal.

Manchester United have been linked with a host of players this summer and on Saturday morning confirmed that they had agreed a fee with Everton to sign striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Red Devils jetted off to the United States for their pre-season tour of America on Sunday.
