Jose Mourinho had a good working relationship with Zlatan Ibrahimovic while they were at Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan and then Manchester United which explains why the Swedish football legend has been seriously linked with a reunion with the new Spurs manager.
When asked about Ibrahimovic, Mourinho categorically said that Spurs won’t sign the 38-year-old striker before adding that they have one of the best three strikers in European football in the form of Harry Kane.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a free agent after his career with Major League Soccer (MLS) side LA Galaxy ended earlier this month.
The Swedish striker has been linked with former club Manchester United as well as the Italian Serie A duo of Bologna and former team AC Milan.
