Man United planning for life without Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Jose Mourinho eyes replacement

Mourinho is aware his group is still short of the quality in depth needed to mount a sustained title challenge, and will be backed heavily in the transfer market by the United board.

The Swede has already managed 25 goals this season in all competitions for the Mancunians, belying his 35 years and playing a decisive role as his brace won the Red Devils the recent EFL Cup final, Jose Mourinho's first piece of silverware at Old Trafford.

Given his agent is Mino Raiola, it's no surprise that reports have emerged that Ibrahimovic is looking for the best deal possible irrespective of what may have been agreed previously, although it's added that he would prefer to stay at United and continue to try and win trophies with them.

"In order to raise my level, I had to come to England and prove to everyone what I could do. If I can win in a situation like this, it means I've done my job well", he felt. And a player of Zlatan's status wouldn't want to miss out on big matches, and under the circumstances, Jose Mourinho will have a tough time to hold on to the Swede worldwide. He motivates you, he tells you things to your face if you're not doing well and must give more.

'He manipulates you so that when you are on the pitch you give 200%.

It increasingly looks like Manchester United would lose star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the end of the season, unless the English club convince him to sign a new contract. The Premier League has a lot of fans and you need to keep up a certain tempo'.

It remains to be seen if LA Galaxy's money power can lure Ibrahimovic to join the United States side to become the second Manchester United player to do so after David Beckham.
