- Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be resigned by Manchester United when he is fully recovered
- The Swede who was recently released injured his knee during an Europa League match in April
- Jose Mourinho says Zlatan could be offered a new contract depending on his fitness level
Zlatan Ibrahimovic could rejoin Manchester United after December, Jose Mourinho has said.
The coach thinks it is "possible" the Swede will play for the club again despite suffering a knee injury that will keep the player out till January.
United did not offer the striker a new contract at the end of the season but the 35-year-old has remained in Manchester during his rehabilitation and is using United's facilities at Carrington.
"It's possible. It's open," Mourinho said. "We wanted to be honest and open and make a decision if his desire was to leave. There was no new contract.
"We left a space of time for everybody to decide and from his view he made a decision that he still wants to play at highest level."
Mourinho says he does not think the former PSG and Barcelona striker will recover from his injury before December hence talks for a new deal will resume in the new year.
"He made the choice to try to play at the highest level. He will recover with us," Mourinho said. "Carrington and Old Trafford are open for him.
"At the same time, let's make a decision that makes us all happy and if that's for him to stay and we wait until December, maybe. I don't think before December.
"But why not wait for a big player who gave us so much?"
Ibrahimovic was spotted with agent Mino Raiola in Manchester telling the press that he will made an announcement soon.
