Manchester United could lose star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, according to radio CRC.

The Premier League side, who drew 0-0 at home to Hull City on Wednesday night to fall 14 points behind league leaders Chelsea, fear the forward could be tempted to move to Napoli at the end of the 2016-17 campaign after comments made by his agent, Mino Raiola.

The 35-year-old, who earned 116 caps for Sweden before announcing his retirement from international football last summer, has impressively scored 19 goals and provided six assists in 32 appearances in all competitions for The Red Devils so far this season.

Ibrahimovic, who arrived at Old Trafford back in July 2016 after leaving Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain upon the expiration of his contract, was left frustrated last night as Jose Mourinho’s men failed to find the back of the net against The Tigers inside the Theatre of Dreams.

However the striker’s agent, Raiola, has hinted that Serie A outfit Napoli could come calling for his services this summer, despite being tipped to put pen to paper on a one-year contract extension with United.

Raiola told radio station CRC, “As for Ibrahimovic, he’s always been in love with Naples and the passion of the Neapolitans and I’ve always said that openly because he grew up in a family which was similar to the Neapolitans and then with me.

“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.”
