Zlatan readying himself for the next stage in his career.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic may be only four competitive games into his Manchester United playing career, but the Swede is already planning his next move.

According to the Sun on Sunday, the 34-year old has already spoken to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho about taking his coaching badges next year.

A Manchester United source told the newspaper:

Zlatan is already tapping into Jose Mourinho and planning for the future in the game.

He has told the lads he does not see an end to his playing days for another two or three years.

Jose has left his door open and Ibra likes the idea of coaching, but not necessarily a manager right away.

He is enjoying picking up a few ideas and he fancies Italy.

Ibra will take a badge when things settle down for him early in New Year and then progress it next summer.

Zlatan has hit the ground running since his summer move to Old Trafford, scoring four goals in as many games, and has already started passing on his knowledge to Uniteds younger players such as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.
