Manchester United are not expected to offer striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract when his current deal expires on 30 June.
The 35-year-old agreed a one-year contract, with an option for second season, last summer.
BBC Sport reports the extension had not been triggered by the time the Swede suffered his season-ending knee ligament injury in April.
The Premier League’s retained list will be released on Friday.
