Manchester United have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be leaving Old Trafford after declining to activate a 12-month extension in the Swede's contract which expires this month.

The 35-year-old was the only player named in the club's published list of released players published by the Premier League today.

Although Ibrahimovic, whose agent Mino Raiola said last week that he is considering a range of offers from around the world, could still technically resign with United, the Europa League champions are set to look elsewhere after the striker sustained a serious knee injury in April which could keep him out of action for the rest of the year.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals across all competitions for United, helping Jose Mourinho's side to the EFL Cup and Europa League.
