Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay at Manchester United for at least another season, according to reports from his native Sweden.

Ibrahimovic, who was suspended for United’s 3-1 English Premier League victory over Middlesbrough on Sunday at Riverside Stadium, has been a hit in his first season in the English Premier League with 15 goals.

Expressen in Sweden claims the 35-year-old’s “main goal” is to win the Premier League with United, a feat he will not be able to accomplish this season with United 17 points behind runaway leader Chelsea.

Mourinho will almost certainly look for another striker in the summer, however, so he can rotate Ibrahimovic and rest him. Romelu Lukaku, the Everton striker who is refusing to sign a new contract at the Merseyside club, is a possibility.
