Zlatan fighting fit for possible Manchester United return

Zlatan fighting fit for possible Manchester United return

Now a free agent, there's an understanding inside United that Ibrahimovic will be offered a new contract to the end of the season in the coming weeks.

United manager Jose Mourinho usually goes with one striker, which has done well so far this campaign, but it's hard to envision Ibrahimovic joining as a backup when he finishes his rehab.

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the final weeks of the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

According to reports, Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks set to return to Manchester United in the next 11 days, after recovering well from the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season. The Swedish striker posted a video of him kicking the eff out of a punch/kickbag, because he likes to show off.

Jose Mourinho revealed earlier this month that contract talks are already underway with the striker.

The town sits along a major road that had been a key supply route for the militant group between Iraq and Syria. Iraqi warplanes have bombarded IS positions in the city for several days, in preparation for ground operations.

Romelu Lukaku is now considered United's main striker, with Rashford and Anthony Martial both starting the season well in a rapid United attack which has scored eight goals in their opening two Premier League games.

"We are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us", the Portuguese coach said.

'It was very clear from him that what he did previous year was not enough for him.

"You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play tomorrow It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him".

Ibrahimovic finished his injury-shortened sole season as United's top scorer after notching 28 times in 46 appearances across all competitions.
