Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reportedly in line for a huge payday if Manchester United manage to win the Champions League this season.

According to the Sun, the Swede will earn around £2million should the Red Devils reach Kiev in May and win the final.

The paper cquote an Old Trafford source, who apparently told them: “Zlatan took a massive hit on his basic pay last time but the club have always been straight with him.

“They know it is his dream to finally win the Champions League and that this season was likely to be his last shot.

“The bonuses are big for all the squad but Ibra had a number on extra personal incentives included.”

United host Sevilla in the second leg of their Round of 16 clash next week with hopes of progressing after a 0-0 draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.

The Swedish veteran managed seven appearances before his knee complaint flared up in December and Mourinho expects the striker to move onto pastures new in the summer.

“For Zlatan we all think it’s his last season at Manchester United,” Mourinho said.

Mourinho added: “And it will be a very personal decision for him to play or to stop.

“I think he won the right of choosing his life, his future, such an amazing player with such an amazing career that only that awful injury in the wrong moment broke a fantastic couple of seasons that he could and should have had with us.

“This season has been really difficult for him. Is he injured? No, he’s not injured. Does he feel totally happy, totally ready and totally convinced that he’s in a condition to help the team? In this moment, no, but he’s such an honest guy and such a champion.

“He only wants to be back with that feeling of ‘I’m totally ready for it’, so he’s working hard and hopefully his evolution brings him to that level where he wants to have a positive answer.”
