Unfortunately for Manchester United, Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks certain to miss the rest of the season, where they battle to finish in the top four in the Premier League as well as winning Europa League. However, the striker could miss as much as 9 months.

Ibrahimovic is the top scorer for Manchester United this season with 28 goals to his name, and his contract with the club will end this summer. He has the option to extend the contract for another 12 months if he wishes, however he has also been linked with a move to La Galaxy or Los Angeles FC.
