Good news: Jose Mourinho sanctions new role for 28-goal world class finisher, Not Lukaku

Manchester United are making conscious steps in making sure they build on last season’s progress in which they won three trophies. The Red Devils started off on a strong note in the Premier League as they recorded an emphatic 4-0 win against West Ham.

Romelu Lukaku netted a brace in the game and Marcus Rashford was impressive. However, Jose Mourinho is not willing to settle for less and as a result is willing to offer the veteran another 1-year contract at Old Trafford.

Early this week, the 35-year-old was reported to have resumed full training at the Carrington Training Centre and fresh report has now suggests that his second stint at the club will be in the capacity of player coach.

The Independent reports that the Swedish striker’s new deal may come with a clause that would see him take his coaching badges at Man United in view of mentoring the younger players.

This comes as good news since Zlatan has a knack for switching clubs which has seen him play in the top Leagues across Europe – Germany England, Spain and Italy. He was previously linked with a move to MLS side LA Galaxy after he was released by United following his knee injury. However, the decision to offer him a new deal is a step in the right direction.
