Ibrahimovic, 35, left Paris St-Germain in July, signing a one-season deal with an option for a second year.

United boss Jose Mourinho believes the Swede will stay , but added that he  never beg for a player to sign a contract.

After Ibrahimovic scored the winner in Sunday’s 3-2 EFL Cup final victory over Southampton, Mourinho said the fans can go to the door of his house and stay there all night to convince the striker to stay.

Ibrahimovic said his “special relationship” with the Portuguese, who also managed him at Inter Milan, was key to his decision to join United , but was not the only factor.
