Door open for new Zlatan deal: Mourinho

Door open for new Zlatan deal: Mourinho

Ibrahimovic is using United's AON Training Complex facilities as he recovers from his knee injury.

Mourinho said: "If the decision is to stay and wait until December - he can't be back until them - why not wait?"

BBC Sport has been told Ibrahimovic, as a result of his star quality, and another former Manchester United player, Javier Hernandez - owing to the huge Mexican population in Los Angeles - are considered flawless candidates to be a symbolic signing for Los Angeles FC.

The Old Trafford club have already spent £106m on Victor Lindhof and Romelu Lukaku during the transfer window and have been linked with midfielders Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan and Eric Dier from Tottenham.

Mourinho, speaking ahead of United's opening U.S. tour game against Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday, said Ibrahimovic could yet return the club next season. But why not for us to wait for such a good player that gave us so much?

"We wanted to be honest and open. We always have. The DNA of the Galaxy is to attract world-class players, so we're always looking for one". At least one. I don't want to say any names because I don't think it is right'. "Everything is so hard".

Tottenham's Eric Dier has also been mentioned as a possibility, though speaking in LA today, Mourinho admitted his club had not "closed the door" on signing the Serbian.

"There was no new contract", said Mourinho. "We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well". But others close to the team said privately that Manchester United has moved on, believing that re-signing Ibrahimovic would be huge risk given his age, the recent injury and the fact his play declined in the second half of last season.

"Obviously we leave the door open for him to recover with us".

"From his point of view he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level, he didn't want to hide behind such an awesome injury, it would be easy to hide behind it and stop and go to a different level of football, but he did not want that".
