Ibrahimovic who scored 29 goals in last 53 games for Manchester United, has agreed to an early close of his contract, which was due to expire in the summer. The 36-year-old former Sweden striker has played only seven times since damaging ligaments in April 2017. “It is time to move on after two excellent seasons with Manchester United,” he wrote on Instagram. Great things also come to an end. Thank you to the club, the coach, the fans, the team, the staff and everybody who experienced with me this part of my history. Manchester United said during his departure; United said: “Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his return and wishes him well for the future.”

Ibrahimovic joined the Premier League club in 2016. Earlier this month, United Manchester manager Jose Mourinho had said the striker was likely to leave at the end of the season. The Swedish, who re-signed for United on a one-year deal in August, returned to action in November after recovered from the knee injury that curtailed his first season at Old Trafford. But he has not featured since the Premier League draw against Burnley on 26 December. It has also been proposed he could come out of international retirement for Sweden at this summer’s World Cup.
