Ibrahimovic to leave Man United at end of season

  • Denis Irwin spent 12 years at Manchester United

"I don't know, but I want him to stay and the club want him to stay".

The 24-year-old France global was brought on in the 17th minute for injured team-mate Ander Herrera, having been substituted in Premier League defeats to Tottenham and Newcastle United, before starting and starring in the club's 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

Manchester United will next face Crystal Palace in the Premier League, and Mourinho is likely to rest a few of his front men ahead of Sevilla's crucial visit to Old Trafford for the returning leg of the Champions League last-16 clash which now stands 0-0.

He was United's top scorer last season with 28 goals in 46 appearances, helping them win the League Cup and Europa League.

Pogba has regularly struggled in a midfield duo, as he receives the ball in areas he can't influence the game in an attacking sense, nor does he boast the defensive focus needed to help protect his back four from that position.

Matic laughed and shook his head when asked if he could say what was written on it, but he was more forthcoming when it came to life off the field. He has returned back to training and is expected to feature in some matches as we head into the fag end of the season.


Matic's son Filip is such a United fan that he recently celebrated his seventh birthday with an extraordinary Old Trafford birthday cake.

Ibrahimovic might not be the only high-profile departure from United this summer.

"It is very important for my country, for our supporters, so everyone is looking forward to that", Matic said. "There's a long way to go and I hope he can continue in the same direction".

"We have a good team also". He will be ready for the last couple of months of our Premier League fight. "So, for the rest of the day, the players can be at home".

"They link up together - but it all feels disjointed in the Manchester United attack". "Are the performances good?' and I suppose it's when you start to see the plateau and the tailing-off, you start to think 'oh, here we go".

Sources told ESPN in late January that the Galaxy were inching closer to signing Ibrahimovic, with a potential deal "the furthest along it has ever been", after the Swede was also linked to MLS before signing with United in the summer of 2016.
