Zlatan Ibrahimovic working hard to secure Manchester United return – report

by Leo Nieboer

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made up his mind over his next destination and will continue to work hard at Carrington ahead of making a return for Manchester United this season, according to reports.

The 35-year-old suffered knee ligament damage back in April during a 2-1 win over Anderlecht and was officially released by the club in June.

Jose Mourinho recently implied that the Swede, who has rejected advances from LA Galaxy, would make a return to Old Trafford once he makes a full recovery from injury.

And the according to the Guardian‘s Fabrizio Romano and Marcus Christenson, Zlatan has indeed pin-pointed Man United as his next destination.

You always sensed that Ibrahimovic wasn’t quite done at Old Trafford. His first campaign, in which he defied the critics by claiming 28 goals, was cruelly cut short and packing his bags for elsewhere, perhaps the sunny beaches of Los Angeles, is simply not in his nature.

He doesn’t want to leave Europe and, with United battling in both the Premier League and Champions League next season, the stage is set for the bombastic striker to once again assert himself on Mourinho’s side. Why, after all, would he want to move on to a new slate somewhere else when he has such a crucial role under Mourinho?
