Zlatan Ibrahimovic turns down new Manchester United contract: report

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a simply sensational football player for us, during his short stint as a Red Devil. The 35-year-old has found the back of the net on twenty-eight occasions, as he has almost single-handedly won games for us at times this season. That was until he got injured…

The influential forward picked up a season-ending injury in the game against RSC Anderlecht just a week ago, and with no new contract penned, many thought it’d be the end of his Old Trafford career.

However, according to The Sun, Manchester United clearly don’t want it to be as they’ve offered Ibrahimovic a new one-year deal; but he has turned that contract down out of principle. The report says that the former PSG man feels it wouldn’t be right to accept that kind of gesture, and fair play to him because many players in his position would have signed on the dotted line immediately.

It just goes to show what a good bloke he is, but the question I’d like to ask is why on earth are we offering him a one-year contract when Ibrahimovic will be out of action for so long? Who knows when he’ll be back, particularly a man of his age, and what’s the point in paying him huge wages to sit on the treatment table?
