Ibrahimovic leaves door open to new Man Utd contract

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Has Been Dethroned As Sweden's Best Player

Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's recent returns from injury have handed Manchester United a "big boost", according to midfield maestro Juan Mata.

Pogba finished the season with nine goals in 51 appearances and winner's medals in both the League Cup and Europa League, his goal in the final of the latter setting United en route to victory over Ajax.

With a goal and an assist in a 4-1 comeback win, Pogba was the man of the match and his overall display helped United find a level they have struggled to reach during his two-month absence.

Ibrahimovic, who was on the sidelines for the past seven months after having suffered a horrific knee injury, was brought on as a second-half substitute in the 77th minute by Jose Mourinho as a replacement for Anthony Martial.

His then world-record £89.3 million ($118.2 million, 100.6 million euros) transfer from Juventus past year created huge expectations and although his first season was successful, there were few fireworks.

The 36-year-old, who rejoined United on a one-year deal after leaving Old Trafford at the end of last season, came on for Anthony Martial in the 77th minute and nearly marked his comeback with a sensational acrobatic goal.

Said the former Manchester City and Wales forward: "The concern with Zlatan is that he is such a big character, always the main man, wherever he's been".

Temporary Protected Status Revoked For Haiti and Nicaragua
Haitians with TPS will not be targeted by immigration officials for early deportation, senior officials said. But now, the Trump administration is ending the program that allowed them to do so.

Stating that: "Football was waiting for you", it is clear to see the opinion that Maradona holds of Ibrahimovic, and like many, is delighted to see the enigmatic figure return to playing.

"I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?" said Ibrahimovic.

'We have a good mix of experienced players and young players, players who know the Premier League really well.

"I think there is a possibility for everything". I am not anxious at all because I know what I do.

Manchester United comfortably defeated Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday and now, they will be looking to earn all three points against Basel in the Champions League.

"We need to have a deep squad if you want to compete until the end in every single trophy so I think the manager if happy with the squad. Hopefully we can do great things together".
