Mourinho: Ibrahimovic will finish career at United

Jose Mourinho says that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not end his career with a lucrative move to the MLS or the Chinese Super League and will bow out "at the top" with Manchester United.

Many expected that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would have one final career move, which would likely see him benefit from the riches of the MLS or the Chinese Super League.

However, it now appears that the Swede will not enjoy a swansong in the United States or China, after Jose Mourinho insisted that he would see out his career at Manchester United.

"I'm really happy for him. Maybe some people thought he was a top scorer but not any more at 35 years old. But for him, 35 is the same as 25, Ligue 1 is the same as the Premier League.

"He scores goals, he plays well and I'm really happy for him because he will end his career on a high, which is amazing. He's not ending his career in America or in China, he's ending his career at the top of the top.

"I'm really pleased with him. His record is good and he can improve. With no penalties, which is amazing too because normally the other guys that are top scorers around the world, they score a lot of penalties. He has had one penalty in 17 Premier League matches so I couldn't be happier".

At 35 years old, many thought that Ibrahimovic would struggle adapt to a new league but with 16 goals in 25 games, the former PSG striker has surprised many with his excellent record.
