Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract at Manchester United will run out on Saturday, July 1st and he’ll become a free agent once more.
The towering Swede was not without his faults during his short time at the club, he missed more chances per minute than any other striker in the league and arguably stunted the development of Marcus Rashford with his manager’s insistence on him playing every minute.
However, without the goals he did score, the Reds could have had an even worse domestic season than they did. They almost certainly would not have lifted the Europa League trophy last month were it not for his contribution prior to his season-ending injury in April.

Reports have swirled in recent weeks as to where Ibrahimovic could land next season with talk of a move to the MLS growing by the day. He is, of course, not short of cash and could decide to take a pay cut and continue on in Europe where few would doubt he could still compete presuming his horror knee injury doesn’t do any long-term damage.
