Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggests that injured striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not agreed to join Los Angeles Galaxy, contrary to recent press reports.

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has offered "absolutely nothing" to suggest that he is close to leaving Manchester United.

The ex-Sweden international has been told by his manager that he is free to leave Old Trafford should he take up a rumoured contract offer from Los Angeles Galaxy.

Mourinho asserts that there is no substance to reports that claim Ibrahimovic has already agreed terms with the Major League Soccer side, however, and expects him to stick around until his current deal expires in the summer.

"I don't speak with players about media news," he said at his pre-Huddersfield Town presser. "I see him every day. I was with the fitness coaches today watching his work. He is with me before training, he is with me after training.

"He never mentioned absolutely anything to me, not an opinion not a comment, absolutely nothing at all so I presume there is nothing true in the news.

"Because I suppose if there is any truth I would be the first to know from him, at least one question, but [I have heard] nothing at all so I presume [there is] nothing."

Ibrahimovic last featured for United in the Boxing Day draw with Burnley, having suffered an injury setback that will likely keep him out for another week or two.
