There have been rumours throughout the transfer window that he may return to the club after his injuries, but the signing of Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku seemed to put all of that to rest. However, United defender Eric Bailly dropped a huge hint the big man may be back to Old Trafford after his recovery when he put up a video on his Instagram page with the caption:
“Hope you’re almost ready to return, Zlatan. I’ll be right here! ???”
The 35 year-old free agent had a successful one season at Manchester United, scoring 28 goals in all competitions and finishing the season with the EFL Cup and the Europa League.
According to ESPN, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could sign a new one year deal before the end of this week.
