Free agent and former Manchester United striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, won’t be returning the English Premier League soon after José Mourinho’s latest declaration.
The Portuguese manager saw his side recorded a hard-fought victory over West Ham on Saturday, and he was asked if he would be adding the Swedish international to his team in January.
Mourinho wasted no time before turning down the chance to reunite with the veteran striker.

According to Mourinho, there is no need signing the 38-year-old in January because his team already possesses the League’s best striker in Harry Kane.
He also stressed that Ibrahimovic is in his late 30s, so luring him to the North London club will be of no use because he will only be a short-term project under his watch.
Having worked with Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford and San Siro (Inter Milan), many pundits predict that it will be easy for Mourinho to bring the player to Tottenham in the winter but that seems impossible after the manager’s comments.
This will come as good news to Serie A sides Inter Milan and AC Milan who are reportedly keen on capturing the player’s services as a way to boost their attacking prowess in the second period of the season.
