His contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side was set to expire next summer but the Red Devils, as widely expected, have triggered the clause that has extended his deal with the club by a further year.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has recovered from coronavirus and might be a part of the AC Milan starting XI that against Inter on Saturday, per Milan boss Stefano Poli.
The 39-year-old striker, who extended his stay at the Rossoneri by signing a one-year contract extension in the summer, went into quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus on September 24.
Milan confirmed last week that, after passing the 14-days in self-isolation, the striker was tested negative for COVID-19 in two successive tests.
