Manchester United have announced the return of striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one year deal.
The 35-year-old Swede, who is recuperating from his knee injury at United’s training facility and is expected to be fully fit by December, scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for United last season.
Confirming the return, Jose Mourinho told Manchester United’s official website: “We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us.”
“After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return. I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.”

Ibrahimovic joined United on a free transfer in July 2016 and was released last June following the knee injury that ended his season prematurely last April.
The big Swede told manutd.com: “I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.”
“I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready.”
“I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.”
