Report: Zlatan Ibrahimovic expected to rejoin Manchester United on a new contract
The talented Swede looks set for his Premier League return
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to re-sign with Manchester United this week, just four months after suffering a serious knee injury, according to ESPNFC. The Swedish star's contract expired at the end of last season, leaving him free to sign with any club during his rehab process. The 35-year-old's speedy recovery has left United with the desire to bring him in earlier than expected.
According to the report, an announcement is expected at some point this week.
Manchester United has won its first two league matches of the season, with new star striker Romelu Lukaku.
Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals for the Red Devils last season, but it remains to be seen how exactly he would fit into the team with Lukaku up top. United manager Jose Mourinho usually goes with one striker, which has done well so far this campaign, but it's difficult to envision Ibrahimovic joining as a backup when he finishes his rehab. If Mourinho can play both up top and they gel, United could wind up being one of the favorites to win the league.
