Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not done playing football.

Despite his current injury, Manchester United is considering offering him a coaching role at Old Trafford.

Manager Jose Mourinho has built a strong relationship with Zlatan and would like the him to play the role of a middleman between the players and the coaching staff.

Ibrahimovic is expected to be handed a new deal once he recovers from his long-term knee injury, as he hopes to play in a squad that now has Romelu Lukaku.

The 35-year-old could be handed a fresh contract in January that will see him play till end of the season, and afterwards, he could be drafted to assist Mourinho.

Reports in England suggest that talks are already on between Ibrahimovic and United about the coaching role, but the player is keen on getting on the pitch again.
