Jose Mourinho Seems To Confirm Zlatan Ibrahimovic Will Return To Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with clubs across three different continents since his contract at Manchester United ran out on July 1st.

However, it now seems he won’t be moving far at all with a remark from Jose Mourinho last night effectively confirming the Swede will re-sign for the Reds when he recovers from a knee injury suffered in April.

When discussing the importance of new signing Romelu Lukaku, the Portuguese hinted heavily that Zlatan will be back:

“We spent big money on a striker because, with strikers, you either spend [big] or you don’t get and we spent because of what happened to Zlatan and we cannot allow ourselves to be without an important, strong striker for the first six months of the season.”

It’s safe to assume the former PSG star is indeed the striker that will be available to the Special One come January.

The Times are also reporting that the player and his agent are in talks with United about signing a short-term deal.

Ibrahimovic, having scored 28 goals in all competitions, ruptured ligaments in his knee during his side’s extra-time win over Anderlecht in the quarter-final of the Europa League. He is currently undergoing his rehabilitation in United’s training ground.

While his achievements in the game are rivalled by very few, welcoming a then 36-year-old back into the fold undeniably presents a risk for Mourinho. However, it’s clearly one he’s prepared to take.
