Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has downplayed rumours linking him with a loan return to the club ahead of the next transfer window in January.
Ibrahimovic, 37, revealed that those rumours are farfetched and that he has to find a balance between work and rest because of his age.
The Swedish football legend spoke about the rumours linking him with a loan return to the Premier League with Manchester United in an interview with Sky Sports as reported by teamtalk.
The former Juventus, AC Milan, Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam striker has been linked with a loan return to Manchester United in the last few days with several media reports claiming that manager Jose Mourinho wants to add his immense winning mentality to the squad when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.
Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United players have lost any form of winning mentality following the poor start to the new season.
The Portuguese tactician is hopeful that the addition of Ibrahimovic will boost his team in that regard.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic signed for Manchester United in the summer of 2016 and spent close to two years at Old Trafford before joining Major League Soccer (MLS) side LA Galaxy in March.
