Manchester United are hoping Zlatan Ibrahimovic will sign a short-term deal at Christmas or early in the new year, according to the Telegraph.
Jose Mourinho has previously confirmed he hopes the big Swede would stay on at Old Trafford and he’s expected to return for the second half of next season.
Man United released Ibrahimovic this summer following a cruciate knee ligament injury which Mourinho believes will rule him out until December, however, with Zlatan working incredibly hard on his rehabilitation, he could be back before then.
He has held talks with LA Galaxy and new franchise LA FC in the MLS, but will want to see out his Man United career in a better way rather than being ruled out with an injury.
When Romelu Lukaku confirmed he asked Ibrahimovic’s permission to wear the No 9 shirt, there were concerns he wouldn’t make a return, but it seems we could see him in a United shirt once again after scoring 28 goals across all competitions before his campaign ended prematurely.
With Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford, Mourinho will have the important cover he needs up front as United hope to challenge for the Premier League title and challenge in the Champions League.
