FOOTBALL: Zlatan Ibrahimovic's future at Manchester United has been thrown into doubt after his agent has talked up shock links with a move to Serie A club Napoli.
Mino Raiola, who also represents Mario Balotelli, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, has earned a reputation for speaking out in the press and did so again with Ibrahimovic.
Having scored 19 goals already this season at Old Trafford, there is no doubt the 35-year-old can play at the highest level for seasons to come with Napoli showing an interest.
Now, Raiola has, according to the Mirror, "insisted a move is not out of the question.”
"As for Ibrahimovic, he's always been in love with Naples and the passion of the Neopolitans and I've always said that openly because he grew up in a family which was to the Neapolitans and then with me,” Raiola told Radio CRC.
"He knows what the love of the Neapolitans means and that passion has always attracted him.
"I know that [Napoli president Aurelio] De Laurentiis knows him, and with Zlatan you never know what could happen.”
Ibrahimovic was unhappy with his teammates' poor finishing in the scoreless draw with Hull on Thursday, calling out Juan Mata's late chance which was saved from close range.
"I did not see any chances where it was difficult for the goalkeeper,” he told BBC.
"It was not a good save from Juan Mata, it was a bad finish. Some saves he made for the cameras.”
