“I think if he doesn’t want to stay, it makes no sense to keep him,” the Swedish striker told BBC Sport.
“You let him go and if he wants to be somewhere else, that is where you let him go to. [You have to] use the situation and bring in somebody who wants to stay,” said Zlatan who scored 17 goals in 33 league appearances for United between 2016 and 2018.
“The dressing is more (about) the players’ respect each other. They’re professionals and understand each other’s situation. Who worries more is the club and the management,” the LA Galaxy forward said in the interview.
“You don’t want a player in your club or in your team that doesn’t want to stay because then you know he will not give 100 or 200 per cent, or he does that and still doesn’t want to stay. It’s a tricky situation and the best is what is the best for the club. That is what you have to look at,” he added.
