Zlatan Ibrahimovich lifts the 15kg Europa League trophy with one hand

After a very successful last season with Manchester United it seems as though ‘the Swedish lion’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic could well be on his way out the Manchester-based club.

After having a prolific season with the Red Devils in which he scored 28 goals, Zlatan Ibrahimovic suddenly had a bump in his smooth sailing boat as he was struck by injury while playing against Anderlecht in April.

While trying to head an air ball, Zlatan Ibrahimovic landed awkwardly bending his knee the wrong way. He instantly went down, whimpering with pain as the physios quickly rushed onto the field to investigate the injury. As fate would have it, the injury was pretty bad and it might now even force Zlatan Ibrahimovic to not play football until the beginning of 2018.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been released by Manchester United after suffering a serious knee injury

Manchester United are well aware of the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be fit until the early months of 2018 and are thus not willing to take any risks by renewing the contract of the Swedish. It was officially confirmed recently when Manchester United released the list of player’s retained by the club and the name of Zlatan Ibrahimovic could not be spotted on the list.

The cruciate ligament injury sustained by Zlatan Ibrahimovic is predicted to take a long time to heal and as he has sustained the injury while wearing the Red Devils’ jersey, United will allow Zlatan Ibrahimovic to train at the club’s Carrington training ground until he fully recovers from the injury possibly in early 2018.

As Zlatan Ibrahimovic was a very important part of United’s plan last term, now they might need to find a new marquee man. And with Wayne Rooney hardly looking in the shape he was in in his prime days, United must sign a pretty good striker to lead them through European defences next season.
