Manchester United will offer striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic a one-year contract extension, says manager Jose Mourinho.

The 35-year-old former Sweden international moved to Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer, with the option of extending his deal for a second year.

He has scored eight goals in 17 games in all competitions this season.

Mourinho said: “We are going to execute the option of a second season. After that he can do what he wants.”

Ibrahimovic said: “I feel in shape, feel fresh and good. If I feel like I do now, it will be a second year.”

Ibrahimovic, who scored 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden before retiring from international football in June, left French champions Paris St-Germain at the end of last season.

The former Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan forward has won a trophy every season since 2001, including 13 league titles.
