Man United boss Mourinho rejects talk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic exit

Ibrahimovic suffered serious knee ligament damage playing for United against Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League in April last year

The former-Sweden global sustained serious knee ligament damage towards the end of the 2016-17 campaign, but United still chose to re-sign him for another season.

The LA Galaxy No.9 shirt is now vacant and Ibrahimovic is likely to be handed that jersey if he makes the move to America, with former Tottenham attacking star Giovanni Dos Santos, who is now the club's highest earning player on an annual salary of $3.75m, excited by the prospect of Zlatan's arrival. 'I am not working directly with him.

"He never mentioned absolutely anything to me, not an opinion not a comment, absolutely nothing at all so I presume there is nothing true in the news". So I presume nothing'. He would be an incredible add to the team and would improve us a lot upfront.

"I want to believe that by Champions League time, around the end of the month, they will be back".

Mourinho had less promising news on Marouane Fellaini who limped out of Wednesday's defeat at Tottenham just seven minutes after coming on as a substitute. The Belgian suffered another setback in his persistent struggle with a knee problem that first appeared in October while on worldwide duty.

"I don't have news because I don't want to give you news based on the initial approach", Mourinho told a press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Huddersfield Town, the club's official website reports.

"So as Manchester United manager, obviously it means much more but I think it belongs to every sportsman as one of the biggest tragedies and at the same time is a crucial point in Man United history", said Mourinho.

Ibrahimovic, 36, is still rehabbing from knee problems. It's the same knee but not the same area. It was an internal injury and now it's external so let's wait a couple of more days but he is out of the game tomorrow. We are not going so far as that but we need him. Probably we are going to lose him for a few weeks, but I can not say if it's two, three, four or five [weeks]. Two, three four or five, I can not say at the moment'.
