Manchester United re-sign Ibrahimovic on one-year deal

Manchester United re-sign Ibrahimovic on one-year deal”

Manchester United are set to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract.

"I am back to finish what I started".

The former Sweden captain missed the Europa League final against former club Ajax in the Friends Arena in Stockholm, a stadium that will soon have a statue of Ibrahimovic placed outside.

Signed on a free transfer last summer, the mercurial striker netted 28 goals in his 46 appearances for the Red Devils before his season ended prematurely.

He has been undergoing rehabilitation at United over the summer and has shown enough positive signs in his recovery to convince the club he is worth a new contract.

But Mourinho's young Manchester United side might find themselves in a predicament at some stage, and the colossal presence of Ibrahimovic is a dream for any manager to have up his sleeve in such situations.

Ibrahimovic, who was linked with a move to Los Angeles Galaxy earlier in the close-season, has been working with United's medical staff at the club's Carrington training base and his regime has been so successful that reports suggest he could be back on the pitch by late October.

On Sunday, however, Ibrahimovic posted a video on Instagram of himself kickboxing, during which he kicked a punching bag hard with both legs.

"After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return". However, Jose Mourinho will know the importance of having depth in his squad, since he will have one eye on the Champions League this season.

The former Sweden global is United's fourth acquisition of the transfer window, following the arrivals of compatriot Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku, who took the number nine shirt worn by Ibrahimovic last term.
