Up until a couple of weeks ago it was taken almost for granted that the… cursed game against Anderlecht in the Europa League, the one he got injured in, had been his last as a Manchester United player.
The last ten days though, there seems to have been a shift in the way Jose Mourinho and his associates see this whole matter, and the Portuguese manager verified it.
Possibly, it’s open. Of course we wanted to be honest and open and leave everything for him to make the decision
the Man United manager started saying, when asked if Zlatan Inbrahimovic could still have a future at Old Trafford.
At the same time, let’s make a decision that makes us all happy and if that is for him to stay and for us to wait – let’s say in December maybe, because I don’t think before December he can get back to competitive football – but why not wait for a player who gave us so much?
Mourinho said, totally willing to stay patient and give the Swede as much time as he needs to fully recover from his serious injury.
We are exchanging ideas and it’s with Mr Woodward and Zlatan’s agent, but the final decision will be the best for the player
Mourinho also said, mentioning Man United chief executive’s talks with Mino Raiola.
