Eric Bailly hints Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be rejoining Manchester United

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has hinted Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s imminent re-signing with his recent Instagram post.

The 35-year-old is widely expected to sign a new deal at Old Trafford as he hopes to recover from a knee injury he suffered in the April Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht.

Bailly’s video shows the Ivorian approaching Ibrahimovic from behind, slapping him on the shoulder whilst the Swede is talking with United staff before quickly running out of the room.

He wrote: “Hope you’re almost ready to return, @iamzlatanibrahimovic, I’ll be right here!” The video was liked by United players Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Anthony Martial, Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia.

Jose Mourinho has already claimed he wants to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic back at Old Trafford as he’s expected to be back in action just after Christmas.

The Portuguese boss already has Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford and with Ibrahimovic, he’ll have the perfect set of strikers as he looks to take on the new season in the Premier League and Champions League.
