Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had a stunning career.

The Swede has won it all during his time as a professional footballer and has represented a host of the world's top clubs, including Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United.

However, this last six months have been extremely frustrating for Ibrahimovic.

Now 36-years-old, the forward is in the twilight of his career, and like so many players who have reached their late 30's, is now suffering from injuries.

The injury that the Swede suffered in April would be a career finisher for most players aged over 35. But not for Ibra.

The former PSG star vowed to make a comeback, and the good news is he may return before the end of 2017.

Speaking at his press conference prior to Man United's contest with Huddersfield, Mourinho provided this update regarding Ibra's fitness: "Zlatan is here, he's working here and under our control.

"He's working as you would expect - so, so, so hard. But he's not going to be back in the next week or the next couple of weeks.

"Let him take his time and be back when everybody feels is the right moment. Do I believe he'll be back in 2017? Yes, I do. But it's just a feeling."


Great news for Man United fans, who will be excited to see the return of their world-class striker.

And Man United fans will have even more reason for excitement, after comments made by Mino Raiola over the Swede's future.

Now 36-years-old, the super-agent confirmed his belief that his client would play for the next five to six years, taking him well into his forties.

Raiola said, per the Sun: "He has so much in him.


"I think minimum another five or six years. I won’t let him stop, he has to work for me now.

"I have been working for him for several years. Now it’s my turn. My children are grown up and I need money.

"We have agreed that he is only working for me for five years now. So we’re flipping it now."

Wow. It seems we could be seeing Zlatan on our TV screens for many more years to come.
