Adidas have confirmed Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s return at Manchester United and his shirt number on their US website.
Jose Mourinho has previously already claimed he would like the big Swede to make the Old Trafford return once completely fit, which is estimated to be just after Christmas.
The Portuguese boss allegedly wanted Ibrahimovic to sign a contract all along, however, Zlatan denied to ensure he could work on his rehabilitation and return to playing football once he’s completed his recovery.
Since then, Adidas has dropped a major hint over Ibrahimovic’s return also confirming he’ll be taking the No.10.
It’ll be great to have him back at the club this season, especially as Jose Mourinho looks to take the club back to winning ways in the Premier League and Champions League.
He managed 28 goals last campaign before his campaign was ended prematurely with an injury and it’s clear he’s still got, silencing critics since his arrival with his brilliant performances, and presence in the dressing room after being sidelined.
Zlatan is the only 35-year-old that would be able to make it back from a career-ending injury and continue his vital role on the pitch, but he’s proven he’s not an ordinary player with his unbelievable work ethic and passion to improve.
